Allowing Your Teens to Drink in the Privacy of Your Own Home?
Some parents think that allowing teens to drink at home will teach them how to “handle their liquor” so there won't be a problem if they should choose to engage in underage drinking.

Is Your Teen Using a Friend’s ADHD Medication as a Study Aide?
According to the PDF, while parents don’t believe their teens are using a friend’s ADHD prescription drugs to get better grades, some teens are doing exactly that. If not prescribed for you, ADHD medications can cause exhaustion, irregular heart beat, confusion, psychosis, addiction, and withdrawal.
