  • No, because freaking out is of little value in influencing anyone.

  • i would try to not totally freak out but he/she would get in a lot of trouble thats for sure! my parents didnt freak when they found my lil bro smoking pot and he was arrested at 16 and dropped out of school at 17 and now lives off mom and dads money and sits at home and smokes pot all day! but my mom thinks he is just the perfect child *rolls eyes*

  • I know that a lot of teens do it but I would be disappointed if my kids did. No one ever believes me but I NEVER smoked pot, I hope my children chose to do the same.

  • thank u guys for ur comments i have a 2 1/2 yr old. and another one on the way and i know its along time from now but eventually they will be teens, i just dont like how my sister in law raises her kids it gets me mad sometimes. she seems lazy at times about punisshing her kids, and she is always out partying on the weekends and getting drunk during the week, she dont seem to pay much attention to what her kids are doing

  • ....freak if they found out THEIR kid......,-Their-and-They're

    Yes, I would be very unhappy if my teenage kid smoked pot.And if my adult kid smoked pot. Pot is bad. Fortunately all three of my adult kids were smart enough to know that life is so much better and more healthy as a result of NOT smoking pot.

  • depends on how much and how often. It's no worse (better actually) than alcohol. And why is th kid doing it? Fun, rebellion, experimenting???

  • she sounds like she has an addiction problem herself. so if she got help for herself maybe she'd realize her kid has an addiction problem

  • I don't think I would freak out. I'm not anti pot, so I would think that I would try to teach my kids how to be responsible about it. But, they're just 3 and 5 now, so maybe I will think differently when they are teens. My SIL who is 16 smokes, and I've been trying to teach her how to be responsible about it.
