    Bad habits like drinking smoking etc. are very dangerous at any age. Especially this drug addiction which is being increased day by day in teens is very harmful for our society. The parents should give information to their kids regarding this and help them to share their emotions with their parents. Thanks for this. The tips are very helpful.
