Sorry to hear that you're going through this at the moment, I can imagine it has been quite shocking and unsettling to find out about this and I'm really feeling for you
I understand conversations have become really tricky but I want to share with you this piece of content on talking to teenagers about drugs. It has some great tips about opening up the conversation around why a young person might be partaking in drugs and how we can support them through this. I hope you find some of the information in it to be helpful.
It is really tough when consequences don't seem to be working, I hope some other parents are able to jump in and offer some guidance, you certainly aren't alone - have you been able to chat to any other parents about what you're going through?
We have this interactive tool that might be an idea to have a look at. The tool is all about negotiation and compromise, and has videos of different scenarios with options for responding, I hope you find it to be helpful.
I am also wondering if there is anyone else in her life that might be able to have a chat to her, sometimes its hardest to have conversations with people we're closest to and we can be more open to hearing from outside parties. Is there maybe an aunt/uncle or teacher or family friend that might be able to have a conversation with her about these worries?
