because the parents don't put da attentions that today they need to...Because when you have a nice relationship with your kids, you have a really good communication right...But kids 13 and up this days they don't give a F!!! For sure

Peer pressure, to relieve stress, depression, to look cool, because no one is stopping him, trying something new, to just go into his own world....for the feeling..Its endless. .

Don't worry about why he started doing drugs, worry about how you are going to get him back to reality and stop doing what he is doing.

It is I'm sure far beyond you to find or know the reasons why so don't dwell on that, but rather focus on you abilities to relate to his sense of reason, if you can reason then you can persuade him to get professional help.

But that may be difficult as well, if he is intent on getting stoned you may not be able to help him, in that event sacrifice the friendship and report him to a school counselor, you may be able to remain unknown but if not better to lose a friend that have a friend get lost in himself and not find a way out.

By the way, everybody should have a caring friend like you.

That's why I put up with the bs on this site, every once in a while, and you never know when that can happen, you might just get the slightest possibility to help, do you understand what I mean Linda ?
