In addition to learning about Fire Safety this month at school, Andrew's class is starting on a unit about Stranger Danger and Drug & Alcohol Awareness. It's a sad world, y'all.
I guess the good news is that even in this time of lean budgets, Andrew's school still has a full-time social worker who helps the teachers with this curriculum. Today's lesson was a really good one. I think we can all agree that kids should refuse prescription medications, alcohol, drugs and tobacco. And, we can probably agree that adults should never abuse those things.
However, how am I to respond when my son comes home and informs me that I need to stop doing drugs. The drug about which he's concerned? Caffeine.
If you need me I'll be huddled in the corner of my kitchen sneaking sips of coffee and Coke, Coca-Cola that is.
