Get a life Lodz
I got one already ...
It is parent duty to talk to a child about the dangers in everyday life, especially about addictions etc
So what else did I say? ... oh and Govt. is there to impose laws aswell on behalf of the people they serve.
but it doesn't mean your child would be abstinent because you told him some facts about it.
The child may when they look up at parents who are saying what they really believe in and practiced themselves. There are alot of wonderful non-coercive yet effective ways of saying things. However, it depends in the internal value set of people ... I'm not saying that anyone must, its just a value set I'm talking about.
It is in human nature to try new things and you cannot do a thing to prevent it
Try out new things ... good things ... rock climbing, hiking, trekking, camping, other nature sports ... writing ... helping poor ... doing something that needs the strength of body while you still have it. These are very new and exciting stuff ... I think these are what human nature and built really demands - something meaningful and benefiting. However, human weakness is to lay idle and do things which are destructive to its ownself and the very fabric of society. This weakness will be carried out by some, but there is no harm to discourage it - which I do.
you sounds like you really need something for a change.
I've had many changes in life asik. I've been drunk once in school - when I tried this stuff for the first time (and thankfully the last time). Since then I've preferred the good changes in life, and they have had positive effects. Been to a few countries (not countries within Europe only) ... met people ... did things which I can treasure throughout my life. Look forward to more meaningful experiences in life ...
so stop judging others
I'm not judging anyone. I'm judging a concept of "having fun" ... which any responsible person should do, to know whether it is wise or not. One must judge the good and the bad ... not necessarily the person carrying it out.
