My ideas are as follows:
4 keys to controlling to drug issue in this county are:
1. Parental involvment- Parents need to develop healthy relationships with their children before drugs come into the picture. Parenting is a tough full time job, and is often taken litely and given a back seat to careers. Society as a whole should support the parenting role- but it doesn't.
2. Self esteem/respect- Kids who are properly grounded do not need to get high.
3. Community resources for kids- Involve kids in positive activities. North Shore Long Island has no where for kids to go- unless the parents can pay a fortune for services. The city has so many free programs for kids to keep them off the streets and out of trouble.
4. Jobs- Kids should earn their own money- parents need to cut the wallet strings and teach them responsbility.
Both of these issues can be improved by parents slowing down with working jobs and increasing their role in the family. Giving a child money can never compare to giving them you- money is everywhere, they only get 2 parents.
