What Parents Can Do "In this digital age, where personal boundaries for kids are becoming more blurred and ambiguous, monitoring your child's mobile phone and online behavior is crucial," said Dr. Charles Sophy, child and family psychiatrist and LG Text Ed Advisory Council Member.

Some teens have been arrested in is why the intellectual life is fun. -- Hudson Hoagland Start Talking Early, Often And Get Others Involved (NAPSA)--When it's time to discuss the subject of alcohol, it's important to start talking early, talk often and get others involved. Alcohol is the most widely used substance of abuse among Amer- ica's youth, contributing to the three leading causes of death among 12- to 20-year-olds (unin- tentional injury, homicide and sui- cide). According to a study, the Asian-American community is not immune. The study found that 17.2 percent of Asian teens ages 1.2-20 drank alcohol in the past month. Research shows that those who start drinking before age 15 are six times more likely to have alco- hol problems as adults than those who start drinking at age 21 or older. A survey by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Ser- vices Administration (SAMHSA) shows that the underage drinking rates were as high as 40 percent in some states such as Nortb Dakota and Vermont. The study also reveals that nationwide, approximately 8.6 percent of past-month drinkers ages 12-20 purchased their own alcohol the last time they drank. Rates were highest in Louisiana and the District of Columbia and lowest in Alaska and New Mexico. 'To combat the epidemic of underage drinking, SAMHSA and the Ad Council have produced a series of national public service advertisements to encourage par- ents to talk to their children about drinking alcohol at an early age. According to a study, 17,2 per- cent of Asian-American teens ages 12 to 20 drank alcohol in the past month. "Underage drinking is a national crisis putting the lives of millions of Americans at risk as well as the futures of many of our youth," said SAMHSA Adminis- trator Pamela S. Hyde, J.D. "The national educational campaign aims at bringing to bear the most effective weapon against underage drinking--conversations between parents and their children." Created by ad agency Deutsch Inc. through the Ad Council, the PSAs aim to reach parents of chil- dren ages 11-15, with an empha- sis on parents of middle school e.hildren. The related website fea- tures an action plan that parents can use to help start the conversa- tion and resources to send to fam- ily members, peers and other adult influencers on their child's decision to drink.

" I've Declared War On The Boysenberry Bush General Petraeus and I have much in common. We are both pursuing a policy of containment. The General wants to contain the Taliban. I am trying to contain my boysenberry bush.. Back in tenth grade Biology we learned about tip layering. The plant throws out a branch and digs its way into a secure foothold, preparing for the next advance. In tenth grade Biology strawberries tip layered but here they are calm and already contained to a strawberry pot. In real life it's my Boysenberry which is tip layering wildly to occupy an ever increasing swathe of territory its stickers ready to explode into the exposed skin of anyone who dares try to stop its advance. The sheer firepower is awesome. It's already assaulted the daisies and now is trying to strangle a zucchini plant. I mean, have you ever seen a zucchini--a ZUCCHINI --strangled? I could sell tickets to this one. As everyone knows, in Counter Insurgency Warfare there are some baddies who are irredeemable and need to be taken out, but there are less bad baddies who might be turned into good, decent, law abiding garden plants. The question of the day is: Which camp is the Boysenberry Bandit in? The second question is how we turn it into a law abiding citizen. Can we pay it to put its energy into growing more berries and fewer thorns? Can we disarm it, cut off the thorns perhaps? Hmmm. My husband gleefully informs me that boysenberries can grow to 15 feet in height. I hope this is only on the East Coast and that Western boysenberries are politer. In the meantime, I am contemplating a policy of...well, about all I can think of right now is to wait for winter when there is a lull in the battle season and then I'll mount a sneak attack with shears.
