We are lucky to have five grand children in good health. Two years ago Guillaume, aged seventeen, told us that his cousin, aged fifteen, took cannabis regularly. Instead of burying his head in the sand my husband, who has always been the family counselor, tackled the problem. He went to a training session with Enfance Sans Drogue and has educated the whole family.
At first individually with each of our grandchildren, children and children in law, then in a group we have reviewed in detail the information on drugs. To our great surprise, the most reticent were the parents. Our granddaughter has not only stopped taking drugs but she helps friends to turn themselves towards something else. I think that my testimony can help grandparents to start acting. The first step is the most painful, and then things follow by themselves.
