    My Drug Problem
    The other day, someone at a store in our town
    read that a methamphetamine lab had been found
    in an old farmhouse in the adjoining county and
    he asked me a rhetorical question, ''Why didn't
    we have a drug problem when you and I were
    growing up?''

    I replied: "I had a drug problem when I was
    young: I was drug to church on Sunday morning".

    "I was drug to church for weddings and funerals."

    "I was drug to family reunions and community
    socials no matter the weather".

    "I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful
    to adults".

    "I was also drug to the woodshed when I
    disobeyed my parents, told a lie, brought home a
    bad report card, did not speak with respect,
    spoke ill of the teacher or the preacher, or if
    I didn't put forth my best effort in everything
    that was asked of me".

    "I was drug to the kitchen sink to have my mouth
    washed out with soap
    if I uttered a profane four-letter word".

    "I was drug out to pull weeds in mom's garden
    and flower beds and cockleburs out of dad's fields".

    "I was drug to the homes of family, friends, and
    neighbors to help out some poor soul who had no
    one to mow the yard, repair the clothesline, or
    chop some firewood; and, if my mother had ever
    known that I took a single dime as a tip for
    this kindness, she would have drug me back to
    the woodshed".

    "Those drugs are still in my veins; and they
    affect my behavior in everything I do, say, and
    think".

    "They are stronger than cocaine, crack, meth or
    heroin; and, if today's children had this kind
    of drug problem, America would be a better place".

    Spending the last 15 years of my life in this field, I would agree that the reason more kids are having drug problems is that fewer adults are doing their jobs as parents :crying:

    My wife is a probation officer and is seeing the meth problem more and more. Meth is almost impossple to kick. It is easly made and used. Parents might want to drug/ drag there kids to more places it might help. Meth is coming to your town, count on it.
    ( I am sorry if I sound mad but I have seen what this drug can do)

    I resemble that post, JW. I'll be 50 in a few weeks, and still bear the scars of that drug problem. Great observation!

    before i sound like i am defended dead beat parents i am not....
    there are a few parents who try to dicipline there youngins' to no avail to still have them get mixxed up in that scene:crying: ...then there are those yuppy type parents who beleive in that time out crap that ain't worth a dam:sad: ...then theres are those who are afraid of having h.r.s called on them for whooping the backside of there youngin' for misbehaving :mad: ...i for one am not afraid to go to jail for correcting my child being in public or in private i do not fear h.r.s for that matter cause i can't stand a youngin' that talks to their parent or rufuses to what they are told..i beleive in letting a kid be kid but teach them the right way to act in public and the right way to treat others if we as parents try our best to lead them down the right path we can only hope they won't fall to drugs or worse things out there...i am firm beleiver that the problems with most of our kids started when they took god outta school, i remember having to go once a week to a bible study class when i was in elementry school did any of you have the same type of class back then?

    Great post JW, I had the same kind of drug problems only it was Church on Sunday morning, night, Wed night and Bible study. Didn't mind the whippin's at school or church or a friends, it wasn't gonna be nearly as severe as it was going to be when Dad and I had our little talks. Now that was a losing situation on my part. Finally wore him out though and he told my mom, I ain't whippin him anymore, it don't do any good.
