It's my impression that the best way to stop addiction in children is prevention. That being said, it seems like certain kids always find a way to get into trouble. I remember growing up, we would have DARE classes, where we learned about the dangers of drugs and other negative behaviors. I know for a fact it didn't work for some kids, but I don't really see what else could be done to prevent this behavior. I do think parents play a vital role, for example, but even if you do all the right things, it seems like some kids just aren't going to respond to positive reinforcement or education. What else needs to be done?
