All we can hope as parents is that if our children do try any drug they will be responsible and realise its a faze soon realising it is wrong and get past it.
Drugs are a worry and it is a big reason we made the choice not to bring our children up in the city. We live in the country, kids don't do drugs here except the indigenous who petrol sniff and drink heavily and that occurs in their communities rather than in town. Kids are less likely to be exposed to drugs where we are and everyone knows everyone so you would soon hear if your kids are in any trouble. We just don't have kids wandering the streets at night, we have very little crime. Every time we go to the city all we hear about and see is drugs and crime. So glad we don't live amongst it.[/QUOTE]
I grew up in a small farming town/community with less then 100 people living in the town and there was a big drug problem amongst the teenagers/young adults there and in surrounding towns. It was very well hidden with a lot more places to hide the crops. Dont get me wrong I understand what you are saying and yes there are more serious drugs and more of it in the cities but please dont be disalusioned (sp) into thinking that just because you are in a small country town where everyone knows everyone it isnt happening there.
I myself never got into the drugs yes I did smoke for a couple of years and I enjoy a drink but my parents brought me up to know it was alright to say no to peer pressure. Lots of kids in country towns get bored because there is little to do and start to experiment and it is usually an adult someones mum/dad older brother/sister ect that give it to the younger ones to try
