If you’re really serious about
drug-proofing your family, plain old-fashioned facts can be important
— almost as important as the parenting techniques we’ve discussed
Because whether we like it or
not, the world that kids grow up in today is a chemical culture,
and they’ve been bombarded with images and innuendo touting an
artificially-enhanced reality long before the first Budweiser
frog croaked or the first X-treme athlete shrugged “Been
there, done that,” and popped the top of a cold Mountain
That’s why it’s important that
parents have a clue about which drugs are being used in today’s
youth culture, and the real (and specific) risks that go along
with using them.
Because the greatest sin of all
to kids in today’s Information Society is to be out of it, and
you don’t have to be if you don’t want to be.
