I am quite sure that you have all been in this situation at one time or another with at least one of your children. You know, when you pretty much know that your teens are going to drink alcohol at a party so you debate to yourself about whether or not to have the party at your own house .

As my children are but 10 and seven, the teen years and all of their related angst and drama still seem so far off. And yet, every time I open up a newspaper lately, I'm confronted with a new (and often disturbing) fact about teens.
