Here's a story of a teenager who, upon threatening to take his own life, convinced his mother (!) to get him some heroin and bring it to him at school. She even prepared the syringe for him to use. This is not what I call good parenting. I don't care what he threatened; caving in and doing something so reprehensible is not the answer. If one of my children had done this, rather than going out to purchase drugs, I would take that child to the nearest mental health facility and check him or her in. They could kick the addiction and get the therapy they so desperately need in order to stop being self-destructive. Mom definitely deserves to go to jail here. Or maybe she needs treatment as well, as she knew how to cook the heroin and prepare the syringe for the child.
