Is it hard to deal with a teenager sometimes: moodiness, laziness, sedentary, and I can keep going, but one of the ones is really important to detect is drugs and alcohol, and if you have been passed for this kind of situation, I would like to hear more about it. Now days there is a lot to watch out for, tough is hard, do not forget LOVE and support is the clue for everything. I am not a pro but is not a secret this will help, trying always to talk without losing patience or raising your voice would work in any kind of situation.
Why? is the question is rounded my head when I am thinking about teenagers using drugs and it could be more than a hundred of answers to this question, like: Parents divorce, no caring fathers, neither family, bulling, fun, friends advice, depression, comparisons, etc. It stars with Marijuana and could end in dead and with this I mean heroin or any kind of overdose, it is so sad to think in future when you have a teenager with this problem. Make them to realize how important they are as a human being and all the things he or she can do with their lives is really challenging and your way to show the good path is a clue. How we can prevent this to happen? I want you to help me with some more answers.
