Parents and Children Should Take Online 8 Hour Drug Class Together

by Mike Miller November 11, 2014
Parenting is every person's (who has children) most important job. Of course this means providing a roof over their heads, clothes on their backs and food in the bellies of their progeny. Parenting is giving your child every opportunity to succeed. Providing the basic sustenance mentioned above is the foundation. But certainly a lot more goes into being a successful parent. We need to communicate on a very close level with our children. We need to be aware of what is going on in their lives. W... [More]

24 Hour Online Drug Classes May Protect Children

by Mike Miller October 6, 2014
Drug abuse provides one tragic story after another. No story is more tragic than the death of innocent victims. Some states are now working to protect innocent children from drug-addicted parents. They are trying to pass legislation that will provide protection for the young and vulnerable, and prevent more tragic stories like that of Jaidon Morris. As reported in www.goupstate.com. One of the primary components of this legislation is that for parents whose children are taken by the Department... [More]

Don’t Kid Yourself, Parents Need Drug Awareness Programs Too

by Mike Miller September 12, 2013
When I was a kid I did not know any parent that supported their child using marijuana. Alcohol was taboo too. Given today’s liberal parenting, it is no surprise that some actually do not have a problem with the kids smoking weed. Other parents who support legalization of marijuana also expect strict regulation of its availability to kids and teens. As reported in www.usatoday.com. The nationally representative online survey was done for the Partnership at Drugfree.org, a New York City-ba... [More]

Middle Class Parents Need 8-Hour Alcohol Class

by Mike Miller November 30, 2012
Make no mistake about it – our children are like little sponges. Even if you do not know it they watch, see and record everything you do. This most certainly applies to alcohol consumption. If your kids see you drinking alcohol it registers. If you drink often, I would not be surprised if they mention that what you are doing is wrong. After all, they are being bombarded with positive messages about the dangers of drinking. As reported in www.bbc.co.uk. Thus, your drinking behavior only s... [More]

8 Hour Drug Classes Could Help Drug Addicted Babies

by Mike Miller October 2, 2012
Every child deserves a fair chance. Every child deserves to be born not addicted to drugs. However, today the fact remains that thousands of babies are being born addicted to drugs ranging from crack to prescription medication. More than half the babies in the University of Kentucky Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit one day this month were suffering from drug withdrawal — one sucking licorice-flavored morphine to ease his tremors and near-constant crying, another so sensitive ...

Could a North Carolina Drug Class Have Saved Baby’s Life?

by Mike Miller August 16, 2012
Should people have to get a license in order to have children? Should they be forced to take drug classes before they can conceive? Don’t laugh – given the high rate of infant addiction and behavior of parents this could be a legitimate issue. In Charlotte, North Carolina both the mother and father of a 17-month-old baby boy have been charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child. This as reported in gasparillagazette.com. Amber Rose Landry, 29, and Scott Paul Landry, 31, ar... [More]

by Mike Miller June 26, 2012
Chaperones play an important role in keeping our children safe. The last thing we want to hear is that our kids were not being looked after in a responsible manner by the adults entrusted to keeping them safe when on a trip. I recently read about a school field trip gone wrong and it made my skin crawl.  It happened in Illinois according to NorthJersey.com. Would you like your children to be watched by these adult chaperones who are charged with outrageous behavior on a recent excursion? ... [More]

Adena Health System (http://www.adena.org/) is applying for grant money to help stem the tide of babies being born to drug-addicted mothers.

Ten of those babies had to be treated for opiate addiction before they could b... [More]

Oklahoma Parents Need Drug Class

by Mike Miller January 28, 2012
The Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) provides an invaluable service. When a baby is born with drugs in its system and the moth tests positive as well, they are responsible for monitoring the situation. In a report on a baby's death, an oversight agency last week found DHS workers left the girl with her mother even though both had illegal drugs in their systems when the child was born. Tamberlynn Wheeler died in Oklahoma three months after her birth in December 2007, showing major ... [More]
