Common household signs that your child may be high

Do you ever find your pens missing? What happened to those big plastic bottles you thought you tossed in the recycling bin? Why are so many spoons missing from the kitchen cutlery drawer?

Have any of your kitchen or bathroom faucets lost their filters? What about your window screens? Are you missing a piece? Do you ever walk into the bathroom and feel overwhelmed by the scent of a heavily sprayed perfume?

Children are incredibly resourceful when it comes to creating methods of taking drugs. You don’t need to go to a “major store” to find these tools. Everything they need can be found at home. As parents, you really need to be on the lookout for these signs.

Have you ever gone to the fridge to find an entire cake gutted from the inside? Have you ever found unbelievable amounts of junk food missing from your pantry?

Has money ever disappeared from your wallet or purse? Do your other children ever complain that things are missing from their rooms? Do you ever walk around your house and notice certain things that make you go, “Huh?”

Most likely you are NOT losing your mind. If you have any concerns that your child may be abusing drugs, pay attention to these very common household signs.

Everyday household items can easily be used to make drug paraphernalia. More expensive items like bikes, musical instruments, and iPods can be sold or sold to pay their dealers.

What does my son or daughter use pens, soda bottles and mesh filters for?

Children often use these items to make bongs. Bongs are pipes used as a method of inhaling marijuana and/or hashish through a water filter. Some kids think this is a purer way to filter out the harmful carcinogens that marijuana and hashish contain. Some of them consider this to be a healthier “high”.

There are millions of thousands of places through a Google search on the internet where you can learn how to build these homemade pipes.

As a substitute for soda bottles, they will use glass from hurricane lamps, large jars, soda cans, and just about anything else that can provide a “chamber.”

What happened to all my spoons and candles?

Spoons and candles can be used in different ways to ingest drugs. Sometimes hash oil is heated in a teaspoon daily over a lit candle and inhaled (through the hollow tube of a ballpoint pen). Spoons are also used to mix and inject stronger drugs like methamphetamine (meth, ice), but sadly, by the time your child reaches that stage, you probably already know this.

I could have sworn I had a pair of diamond earrings in my jewelry box.

Nothing in your house is sacred when you have a very drug-influenced child. Yes, they will rob their own mother. Check your valuables from time to time. If things start to go away, start asking questions.

What happened to that cake you had in the fridge? It seems that a herd of animals pounced on him.

No, that wasn’t a herd of animals. It was probably her son or daughter coming off a high, desperately in need of a sugar fix. They didn’t use a fork. They used their hands. They also prepared and ate three packages of Kraft macaroni and cheese at one time.

I left my bag on the kitchen counter and now $50 is missing.

You are not imagining this. Even in your own home, you are vulnerable to theft by the drug-addicted child. Your other children are also extremely vulnerable. They may not want to tell you, but they may suspect that their brother or sister is stealing from them.

Often, there are no obvious warning signs to alert us that our children have already started down the road to drug hell. As parents, we have to look at the subtleties.

Look around. Look around her house. If something doesn’t seem right, it probably isn’t. Keep track of your things. Don’t listen to the “dog ate my homework” story.

For the sake of your beloved child and your own, don’t ignore these common household signs of possible drug abuse. Your child may already feel out of control.

Use these early opportunities to take a stand. If you really don’t feel good about something going on right under your roof, trust your gut and address the issue now.

The life of your son or daughter may depend on it.
