Talking about the basics of sex is grand when your wife's a biologist. What about drugs though? My eldest is going into 6th class now, and apparently kids start to come into contact with booze and weed and pills more or less at their first secondary school disco. The "drugs are bad m'kay" line is a lie, and my own (very limited) experiences have been almost entirely positive, so ...

I've pointed out that some drugs are much more dangerous than others, and also said it's a good idea to learn to have fun as an adult without intoxicants first. Afraid to talk too much about it in case I get asked if I ever took drugs, and then I'd either have to lie or implicitly endorse drug-taking. Or refuse to answer, I spose

Anyway - any thoughts?

My folks told me nothing. I missed out on three good years of drug taking over it. If anything point them to good factual resources and maybe that site that warns about bad shit?
