my 13 year old son has just started high school. he is starting to experiment with smoking and alcohol, without my ok. i don't know what stand to take on all the new experimentation that will take part over the next few years. whether to take a strict stand as far as my values are concerned, or to create a safe place for him to do things safely. have heard of parents allowing their children to drink or sleep with their girlfriends at home in a controlled safe environment. don't know what is best for him.
