Monitoring teenagers

One way for parents to prevent alcohol and drug use among their children is to know where they are and what they will be doing during unsupervised time. Research shows that teens with unsupervised time are three times more likely to use marijuana and other drugs. Unsupervised teens are also more likely to engage in risky behaviors such as underage drinking, sexual activity, and cigarette smoking than other teens.
