Drugs and other Dangerous Substances

The Internet doesn't cause young people to abuse dangerous substances or misuse weapons, but it can be an encouraging or enabling factor. The most important thing to realize is that if a youngster abuses these substances, there is almost always a larger problem that needs to be addressed. Nevertheless, these sites can be disturbing.

Most Internet filtering programs can block these types of sites. If you have installed one and are still concerned your child is viewing these sites, you might want to use a monitoring program so you know if your child is visiting them and you can take appropriate action.
