Walking home from school pick up this afternoon, here was a group of 6 young lads (probably no more than year 4 - by the look of them) - passing around a few textas and encouraging the others to sniff them, 'cause it makes you feel all mad'.
I listened for a little bit and let my kids run ahead to home.
One kid kept asking, "but WHY do you smell it?" he didn't sound keen, the others were like,"yeh man..it makes you feel all maaad!!"
all I could do was to turn around and looking them in the eye, say - 'listen guys- every sniff you take of those chemicals will kill all the little brain cells in our head,not good.'
They just laughed nervously.
I'll head up to the school in the morning and inform the principal I think.
