The teenage years are typically a period of experimentation, regardless of parenting skills and influence.
Parents typically worry about their child becoming dependent on drugs, such as methamphetamines, ecstasy, heroin and cocaine. However, the more likely threat to any teenager’s health is the use of legal drugs such as alcohol and tobacco.
There are some common reasons that young people use drugs for example, to change how they feel because they want to feel better or different, when they try to socialize sith some group of people when they try to feel the part of group, to escape from psychological or physiological pain or experemination, or wanting to take risks.
I think, the general person who can prevent a child from using drugs is their parent. There are no parenting skills or behaviours that guarantee a young person will never touch drugs. But parents can reduce the possibility that their child can experience drugs. They can make close and trusting relationship with their child from an early age, and support and encourage positive behaviour. Keep themselves informed about drugs and educate their child on the dangers of drug use. Parents can encourage a healthy approach to life, including good foods, regular exercise and sports.
