Where Are Our Kids Getting Prescription Drugs?

At home. With friends. At a grandparent's house. At the store. At school... Kids can find prescription drugs in more places than you can imagine. Check out this terrific interactive tour, Rx Danger Zones, sponsored by The National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign.

It's a good reminder to parents to keep a close eye on their prescription meds — and on their kids.

Of course, you may feel you know what's going on in your own home, but you don't know what's available to your child at a friend's house. That's why it's so important to talk with your kids about the dangers of prescription drugs — and the temptation to go with the crowd when it comes to peer pressure.

We have to keep talking. We have to keep paying attention. Man, nobody ever said this parenting thing was easy, huh?
