Huffing

Have you seen this?

Every day parents say, "My kid isn't doing that." When I worked at the high school years ago, I heard it ALL. THE. TIME. About random every day stuff, not just drugs.

Parents, and those responsible for children on a daily basis, should educate themselves about EVERY DAY DANGERS, not just the obvious ones.

I know these people. I've met the daughters. And while I sit back and watch them claim to have known everything about their daughters' life, I can't help but wonder what else she was hiding. An honor roll student? Yes. But deep down inside, there was more. There always is.

I cannot speak from experience when it comes to drugs or anything of the sort. The only drug I've ever done is marijuana (thanks Doc!) so obviously I don't have a basis for judgement. However, I have been curious about mind altering hallucinogenics. I know what it's like to want to be completely outside of your mind just so you could attempt to see a different view of something. Something that takes you out of a state of mind that might not be so easy to normally trudge through. And although an "almost perfect child", she's no different than any other teenager who just "wants to know what it's like".

I will never pretend to understand the feelings of either of her parents, or her sister, but I can spread the word that this is happening. Whether you know or not.

Don't let it be YOUR child you walk in to find.
