How To Keep Kids Off Drugs

I told him that when my kid turns seven years old, I'm going to take him to the jail in my hometown and let him get inside a cell and I'm going to shut the door and just let him sit there for awhile. When he realizes this is not what he wants I'll let him get out and I will say to him, "IF you stay away from drugs, away from guns, away from violence and away from gangs you will never see the inside of a jail cell again. " I want him to fall the cold, damp lonely feeling of sitting in a jail cell first hand. I want him to know this is what he will get if he does not do right. In other words, I want to scare my child straight. I want to take him to the bad part of town (in a police car, of course) and let him see first hand how people who do drugs live. I want him to know if he does drugs he will live like that too.

I'm going to keep up with my child when he enters school. I going to make sure I know Where he goes after school, what he does and who he hangs out with. If I get him a computer which I'm sure I will, I will not let him keep it in his room. I'll put it out in the open where I can keep an eye on what he's doing on it.

Please remember, the computer, although a great learning tool is also an enemy to your child. Every pervert in the world is online trying to find your child. Every hate group in the world has a website that's attractive to your child and they will probably find it even iof they're not looking for it.

Your child can accidently download porno while trying to find something else. They can download vilient video games. The can find drugs, guns and anything else on the internet.

Keep in touch with your children for the first eighteen years of their lives. That's the best advice I can give. If you can not keep in touch with them then, do not have kids.
