  • i would drug test my kid for sure. i wouldnt let my child hang out with a crowd like that. "You are judged by the company you keep"-your kid could get into trouble and not be doing drugs. i have been down that road and i dont want my kid going down it if i can help it. but he is 2 so i have a while before that. :)

  • I would tell their parents if i knew them if not then i would confront them and most likely hold them until i could get the police there. I think that the sooner they learn how wrong it is the better. I would also explain to my child/children why they will not be allowed to hang out with them anymore.

  • first I would forbid my teen from being friends with them and move heaven and earth to enforce it. Second, I'd confront their parents with it. Then drug test my own child.

  • eh, I'd bust them out in the middle of the buy, tell their parents and ask my kid if he was doing it too.

  • Well as a teen I was in that kind of situation. I was humliated when my parents confronted my friends parents. I had some what of a hard time with my peers after that. But I am glad my parents were there for me. I personally would try to notify the parents without letting them know who I was. I would forbid my child from seeing these kids again. I would have a drug test and set strict rules that will be enforced or there will be hell to pay.

  • I would ask them what was going on. Then Id contact their parents and let them deal with it from that point on.

  • Am I friends with the parents? If so, I would tell. This is too important. I would want to be told. I can't take care of my child if I don't know everything. I know it might cause hard feelings, but you are better received if you aren't one to call and complain about everything their child has ever done and said.
