Children under stress fall easily into drugs **"**/>« What could say it better than a portrait from Bill & Carol Roenne Call about our Valentine's Day Specials 823-6077 JOURNAL ADS PAY By The Journal's Wire Services Drugs are uppermost in the minds of parents these days, and for good reason. Many of our nation's youth are in trouble. We're in the midst of an epidemic and no one's kids are safe. America's parents live in fear of the symptoms — falling grades, withdrawal from family, loss of interest in hobbies and sports, obsession with heavy metal music, and frightfully blank expressions. But even in the pre-school years you can help prevent your youngsters from becoming involved with drugs, according to Better Homes and Gardens. Many children, from early ages, are pressured to achieve academically, athletically, and socially, observes psychologist and educator David Elkind in his book, "The Hurried Child" (Addison Wesley). Under stress, says Elkind, children live in almost constant fear of failure. Hurried children become more self- centered and more likely to take impulsive risks, thus opening the door for involvement with drugs. Other experts relate the problem to children who have no tolerance for frustration, who think that something can be had for nothing, and who have been given too much too soon by well-meaning parents. Drugs satisfy the overindulged youngster's need for intense, immediate reward. Parents need not feel helpless in the face of the drug epidemic. You can take preventive steps. Here are some suggestions. • Protect your children from stress. Keep them out of organized sports, pageants, and other adult- supervised competitive activities until early adolescence. Accept their limitations, academic and otherwise. Be understanding of their personalities, too. If they aren't outgoing, don't try to force them into social situations. • Prevent your children from becoming self-centered. Put the marriage, not the children, first in the family. The marriage is the foundation on which everyone's stability rests. • Help your children develop security and self-esteem. Establish your authority early. Parental au- thority is the cornerstone of a child's sense of security, and security is the foundation of self-esteem. • Prevent the "I've got nothing to do" syndrome. Keep television watching to a minimum, and don't ever let it become your child's primary source of entertainment. There may be more than just a chance parallel between the blissful state of passivity that television watching induces in children and a drug "high." Youngsters who become dependent on television at an early age are more likely to transfer that dependency to drugs during their teen years, argues Marie Winn in her book "Plug-In Drug" (Viking- Penguin). •Wedding Gowns •Bridesmaid's Dresses •Custom Dyed Shoes •Flower Girl Dresses •Lingerie •Custom Designed Headpieces »Mother-cf-the-Bride and Mother-of-the-Groom Dresses •Accessories 'Tuxedos Sfwcfal "The Wedding Specialists" 121 IS.
