We became well known in the ‘60s for powerful changes in attitudes toward drug use. Our generation used illegal drugs to a much greater extent than did previous generations.
It was thought that baby boomers would outgrow their love affair with recreational drugs, but that is oh, so not the case.
By 2005, nearly 5% of baby boomers visiting ERs reported that they’ve used drugs since the ‘60s.
So, when you send your kids to the grandparents' house for the weekend, you may want to ask those delicate questions focusing on substance use.
Yes, they’re your parents, but your kids come first. Your kids’ safety is in their hands and grandparents have to be alert and ready to problem-solve. Just sayin’…gotta have "the talk"!
