When I was a teenager I did some stupid things...we all have I'm sure. I use to tell my mom I was staying over so & so's house and I really stay at my boyfriends and party half the night.
The parties I would go to there would be people smoking weed, making out, and drinking 40's and Boones Farm...you know you remember Boones LOL... we sat around playing cards and listening to music...some people danced... I did not, sadly I lack in the coordination department lol
Now that I have put that out there let me tell you what I heard on the radio this morning. Apparently, teens now, go to parties and make a "chex mix". This "chex mix" consists of prescription pills that the kids steal from their parents. They empty all the pills into a big bowl and mix it up. They then each take 2 pills, not knowing what pills they are taking.
The only prescription pills I have are my thyroid pills...for someone without an underactive thyroid my pills would be like speed for them. I can't imagine a teen taking my dosage, let alone mixing it with something else! And I'm sure that along with the pills, these teens are drinking too.
Teen parties now-a-days include heavy drug use, strong alcohol and sex. I can only pray that I raise my kids well enough to have better sense than this. My boys are turning 13 & 12 this summer... it scares the shit out of me.
Here are some websites that might be of interest to those with kids:
Parents: The anti-drug
Spread the word so that parents of teens are aware of this new trend... you never know if it will be your child.
