Detroit A majority of parents of teens are willing to ask them to take a home drug test, according to a recently released survey from the nonprofit drug-prevention group notMyKid.
Two-thirds of parents of teenagers are willing to ask their child to take a home drug test as a prevention method, according to the survey of 2,064 adults nationwide.
The study applauds parents for being proactive in talking regularly with their children about the perils of drug abuse. The vast majority of parents talk with their kids about drug abuse on a weekly or monthly basis, the survey said.
It also found that a quarter of parents either have not had those discussions at all or did not begin discussions until their children were in high school.
