This week, we're asking St. Louis parents to tackle the issue of drug use.
Suppose your 16-year-old comes to you wanting to talk. He expresses concern because he knows that a neighborhood friend has a stash of drugs in his room. He is conflicted. He doesn't approve of drugs, but he doesn't want to become an outsider at school, where a growing number of students are using drugs.
So onto this week's question: What should you tell the friend's parents? And how would you advise your child to respond to the situation?
