..Drugs Today: What You Need to Know

If you're really serious about drug-proofing your family, plain old-fashioned facts can be important -- almost as important as the parenting techniques we've discussed thus far.

Because whether we like it or not, the world that kids grow up in today is a chemical culture, and they've been bombarded with images and innuendo touting an artificially-enhanced reality long before the first Budweiser frog croaked or the first X-treme athlete shrugged "Been there, done that," and popped the top of a cold Mountain Dew.

That's why it's important that parents have a clue about which drugs are being used in today's youth culture, and the real (and specific) risks that go along with using them.

Because the greatest sin of all to kids in today's Information Society is to be out of it, and you don't have to be if you don't want to be.
