  • Have a long talk. Tell them that I did when I was young, now I know better. I would tell them the facts and hope they stop. They would be made to stop if they wanted to live in my house.

  • Wow. That's tough.

    I know many kids in our area smoke pot at some time. In college, where my son is, it's pretty common.

    My kids know their dad and I don't approve; but I would be most concerned with where they got it, and if they are hanging with kids that are into smoking it, or just curious and giving it a try.

    In any case, we would have to have a long talk. And I would want to stay on top of it.

  • i would explain to them the effects that it can have on their life and how i felt about them doing it. i would however not get mad and yell and try to force them to stop because lets face it, they wont, they will just start lying and sneaking around about it. i know that im prob alone on this but i would prefer that my children were to do things like that in my house, not because i think that that behavior is ok, but i would prefer that if anything bad was to happen it would be at my house where i can help rather then some kids basement or the park or who knows where and not get any help at all. i want my kids to know that they can come to me for ANYTHING even if they know that i dont like it.

  • Can't say I would do to much, as long as they were home and not out with friends, I wouldn't have much issue...

  • I'd tell his dad and his dad would kick his ass.

  • Ask him to puff, puff, pass!

    No- in all seriousness, I have no idea. I don't think I'd get mad though. I would have a sit down with him/her and talk about the dangers of drugs and such. And I'd probably ground him/her.

  • I would make sure it was the real thing and not the synthetic form that is going around my neighbor hood because that stuff has paint thinner in it. And then if it was the real thing I would tell them not to let it effect their grades, not to get caught. If it was the synthetic stuff I would kill them because they KNOW BETTER!!!

  • Ground the heck out of them and make sure they had 0 freedoms. I have zero tolerance when it comes to drugs PERIOD & with alcohol and smoking with those who are underaged.
