Problem Parents

"Problem Parents" increase the likelihood that their 12 to 17 - year olds will smoke, drink, get drunk and use illegal and prescription drugs because of their failure to:

  • Monitor their children's leaving their home and hanging out on school nights (Monday through Thursday)
  • Safeguard their dangerous and addictive prescription drugs, like painkillers and stimulants, from their children.
  • Address the problem of drugs in their children's school. 
  • Set good examples.
