So she'll remain innocent

So she'll remain innocent

She’ll be aware of the dangers and be able to make smart informed decisions and not cave in to peer pressure. Better your “innocent daughter” find out from an educator than her friends.

Yes they should

Yes they should. Because your daughter may be innocent, but is still going to be exposed. She can either find out about drugs from wrong people or from the right people. You are better off to have your child find out about the dangers of drugs from parents and teachers than Chas veshalom the opposite. Let’s not be naive. The dangers are real. The dangers are in your neighborhood. The best defense is offense. Educate your children about the dangers of Alcohol, Cigarettes and Drugs.

Excellent. Everyone will eventually be exposed to drugs. Give them the tools.

If you know the danger you will not use it

When you know the side effects you will not want to use it. Life is beautiful and it’s a big waste to waste it for drugs

Educate your children about drugs and abuse and how and where to get help. Knowledge is a power. Pls, don’ T live in Lala land, we are in very crime area and crime of drugs and abuse comes from immediate family and friends circle ….
maybe educate yourself first ….

PRIMARY PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN SECONDARY CURE

We, unfortunately, live in an Age of such Shtus & Shmutz all around us.
The time is totally prevalent to accepting that raising one’s children in an “isolated bubble” does more harm to those Heilike Neshamas than giving them basic good education on what’s right & wrong on the outside of one’s home/school/community.
The so-called “pure” children need not hear any negativity from their school friends. They cannot walk home/be driven anywhere without seeing some of the world’s garbage pass by.
A well-informed Preventative Education Module certainly, in my humble opinion, seems to be the best route to take.

It is a good thing that she is hearing about drugs from the teachers, there are some young frum kids that died from experimenting with drugs in crown heights
