Sad for Steph and the family. Although the family has been kept out of the spotlight most of the time, they are still followed in a way most of us would find excrutiating. The reality is that privledge also comes with a great deal of responsibility and stress. Let us not forget that this family has given a great deal to the "community in need" and should be recognized for that. Situations like this happen in most families at some time-maybe not drug related but poor judgement in all cases. Parents, siblings, neighbours and friend must be supportive at this time and non-judgementsl. We all make mistakes. Look in the mirror and be glad your mistake was not posted for all to see. This news story can be used as a reminder to all that we need to keep a more watchful eye on our young people as they face a great deal of stress and don't always have the coping skills necessary to deal with them.

You are right, Jon has helped countless families through his wonderful foundation and his generosity to his local communities started many years ago and continuing today. I don't know of anyone more committed to giving back to his supporters and the needy who have given him and his family so much by way of his success. Plus, he is a wonderful, kind, funny, well-grounded individual himself who must be hurting. I am sure his family is broken by this error in judgement by his young daughter.

Every parent who sends away a son or daughter to school worries for four years about the countless pitfalls and decisions our kids have to make. Kids make bad mistakes and the kind of man he is, I believe he will support his daughter, get her help and help his family to heal. Too bad the media will sensationalize this sad family event to make money. Too bad there will be judgmental critics who are eager to point fingers at Jon. somehow they forget the saying, "But for the grace of God go I".

Kids make dumb mistakes..wealth or background doesn't necessarily mean those screwups will be more or less severe. Hopefully it's a lesson learned, and she admits there is a problem and detoxes successfully.
