Six local teenagers overdosed yesterday on anti-depressants that had been prescribed for one of their dads. The kid brought the pills to school to share. Five remain under medical care.

I have talked with my kids since they were very young about the dangers of drug abuse. But this tragedy brought home the question of how well do we really know our kids and how they will handle peer pressure. We make our views plain, but how do we know that is enough?
