If you smoked pot when you were younger, would you admit it to your kids when trying to steer them away from it? Is it helpful to share your experience, or does that make it seem more like it's okay to do? I'm torn. I don't know if it's actually helpful or not. It may be better to just explain things without telling them that you know from experience. I'm usually pretty open with my kids, but I don't think I have to tell them everything. Someone recently asked me this, and I really didn't know how to answer. What say you?
