It is the time of year when children are preparing for graduation. Many will graduate high school and go off to college. Some of them will attend colleges far away from home and for many it is an exciting time.

Parents I urge you to sit your child down and have a good talk with him or her. They are still at point when peer pressure have a powerful impact on their lives. Emphasize to them the importance of living by the standards by which they were brought up and not to give in to peer pressure.  These need to understand that because everyone one else is partaking in something it doesn’t mean they have to do likewise.

Recently I listened to the news of the death of another college student and it saddened me to learn that drinking played a part in this young man’s death.  I can’t help thinking that this is a situation that could have been avoided.  It might be fun to attend college away from home but they have to understand that it is a tough world out there and they have to try and keep safe.
