Robert has always been open about his drug issues,as well as appreciative of the support he was givin. Jon wasn't a drug kinda guy. I don't think you can blame it on the parents. Unless we are talking about Drew Barrymore.:) love her and yes props to her and her accomplishments.

We can't tell if that is to be blamed to parents or not, but whatever the case would be, should be that education starts at home? Parents should do their duties and responsibilities to their kids, more than anything else whether you're a celebrity or not. Just my two cents.

Some parents are to blame, and some not. Speaking from personal experience on this one, all kids do stupid stuff at some time. I wouldn't say it's the parents fault as far as Jon goes, in the way this article is implying. If Jon was at fault some how, and I don't think he is, it certainly wouldn't be from some example of that type of behavior. At least not from anything I have ever seen/read. I think its more of a peer pressure issue.
