I agree, VamPyroX -- communication's the key to a healthy life. I have a step daughter who was caught chroming a couple of months ago (she's 13)...chroming means inhaling paint fumes in a plastic or paper bag. I don't know if she's stopped or not since she doesn't live with her father and I. I believe it was through peer pressure and family conflicts at the main home.
It's not only drugs...it can be alcohol and cigarettes. Daughter smokes at the main home as her Mum allows her to smoke and supplies the cigarettes! Hubby and I don't allow her to smoke when she's here with us. I've explained to her why we don't allow her to smoke despite the fact I smoke myself...it's cos she's too young to be smoking and is underage as well.
But her mother allows her to smoke! :madfawk:
