Moms Talk: When Should You Talk to Your Child About Drugs?

Local K9 unit helps bring awareness to schools on the dangers of drug use.

Chris Kish, Doug Fulton, and Hector Hernandez are owners of Michigan K9 Solutions, a company that works to detour the bringing, using and selling of narcotics at our local schools, places of business, and community.

Kish joins the hour to discuss the startling facts relating to kids and early drug use. Kish is a certified dog trainer with his dog Onyx, as dual purpose narcotics and patrol. Kish also is a certified corrections officer, police officer reserve and firefighter, as well as an industrial safety instructor. 

Kish knows more about our children and the world of drugs than we'd like to know. Unfortunately, knowing is our only means of combating this early danger. 

Let's take this hour to allow Chris to inform us of the appropriate age to discuss drugs with our kids, and share general knowledge of this subject we all must unfortunately know of.

Peer pressure has been a problem for forever, but now with the internet even the kids considered to have few friends in real life have them online and they are finding more and more ways to obtain illegal substances. I have a connection at Brighton Hospital and Heroin is THE drug right now with young people. My daughter is in 5th grade and we have had these talks. She is aware that I am aware and I think that is step one.

Great information Chris, Lindsay and everyone else. It's great to know that a business like this exists. Especially during times when school budgets are beyond tight and administrators are stretched so thin.

Make sure your children go to church and understand that drugs are Satan's main tool. Start to inform your children to talk to you about everything, and never push them off or laugh about anything. I raised 4 children and know the insidious nature of drugs. Lost one daughter, and now maybe a son. These are educated adult children. Drugs are everywhere and are turning beautiful children into runaways and sick young people. Be strong and tough rocks with your children on this subject. I am 62 and have seen afew things raising children.
