If you are a parent and asked yourself that question, I’ll bet you would say, “Of course!” when deep down you’re whispering “No, I don’t.” If you see him come to the dinner table with his eyes not quite focused and bloodshot, you blame it on him being tired from studying too hard. If you notice her not being able to sit still and smiling broadly, it’s just because she’s so happy.
But Narconon schools warn that it might not be. And you need to face it, and do something about it. But what?
I’ll bet you think that you are a great parent. You’re probably right. You taught him right from wrong, and the day he got an F in Science, he showed it you because it’d be wrong if he didn’t. You showed her how to treat others with respect and kindness, and she takes flowers to her grandmother every year. You loved him from the bottom of your heart, and he loved you back. You really did the best you could.
But did you ever talk to him about the dangers of drug use?
Narconon meetings suggest to ask anyone what the hardest thing is to deal with in school, and nine times out of ten, they’ll tell you it’s peer pressure. It may have been hard when you were a kid, but today it is much harder. And your child is the one out there dealing with it.
How could you have known that drugs were going to be a large part of the peer pressure your child faces? Even if you didn’t warn her, she knows better. Her friends are really nice kids; they certainly wouldn’t have anything to do with drug use. Besides, how would she even begin to know where to get anything like that?
Around Christmas this year, you noticed a slight change in his sleeping patterns. Or was it slight? You don’t really watch him that closely anymore; he’s on his way to being an adult and can for the most part take care of himself. But you begin to notice that his light stays on in his room far past midnight, and he’s up and ready to go to school at 6:00 AM with a smile on his face. You look closer, and his pupils are dilated.
It’s hard to accept, but here’s the deal: He may very well be doing some kind of drug, and it’s up to you to stop it.
Read the Narconon reviews, a drug rehabilitation program with proven results, and find the statistics and testimonials. During the 2011holiday season, the center published their holiday schedule for admitting addicts for recovery. They believe that the best time for rehab is during the holidays since addicts have a harder time saying no to drugs at that time.
Educate yourself, find out information about trendy drugs even if they are legal such as prescription drugs and marijuana dispensaries and then sit down and have a talk with your child. I know it’s hard, but it may save her life. No, I’m not kidding, and yes, it’s that important. And when you do, make sure that she knows that you are on her side. That she is not the enemy. That you will help her every step of the way. That if she has to take a drug test, it does not mean that she will “get in trouble” if it comes up positive. After all, you love her more than anything on earth.
Make sure that she knows that, too.
