Ice ad­vice

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - LIFESTYLE -

Q: Why are teenagers at­tracted to ice (or metham­phetamine)?

A: Peer group pres­sure. Metham­phetamine has been around for years, is read­ily avail­able, causes enor­mous eu­pho­ria and is a very rapid ad­dic­tion. Parental education from an early age helps. Con­stant open dis­cus­sion helps, as does keep­ing their minds and hands oc­cu­pied. En­gag­ing with the kids as much as pos­si­ble with pos­i­tive ideas helps.
