Your Kid Hangs Out Here

How about this one: “If you’re pretty sure your teenager and friends have tried some marijuana while in your basement, and you’ve talked to all the teens involved expressing concern, at what point do you owe a heads up to the parents of the visiting teenagers?

”I personally would prefer that the ‘testing’ be done in my basement versus somewhere else. I know that experimenting is part of growing up. I’m not sure how worked up I should be.”

How worked up would you be, should you be, could you effectively be?
