Young People and Drugs 2009

Published by AB-
Young people’s drug use is an emotive issue. As adults, our initial impulse can be to deny the choices that young people make, so that we don’t have to deal with the underlying reasons. This response is all the more tempting because contemporary young people inhabit such a different cultural, social, and economic environment than the one we, the generation making many decisions that shape their lives, are familiar with.

We also feel a strong impulse to control their behavior. We are responsible for our children and we have the wisdom that comes with age. Surely we should compel them to do what is right and punish them when they don’t?
