    • I firmly believe that Abraham is right with her/his statements about how drugs can affect children and parents. As Abraham said, parents using drugs can affect a child. The child can be abused and get traumatized. Also because of the parents taking drugs very often, that could cause the child to grow up and become just like the parents. One other thing that i agreed with Abraham about was that the parents wouldn’t even be able to take care of the child because they would be on drugs and that is not okay. Thank you Abraham for sharing what you thought about this situation.

    • Dear Abraham:

      I am very interested by your post, “Drugs affecting children and parents” because it is an unfortunate true thing that happens everyday and many innocent are put in danger with no help.One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “Parent’s should be more mature and they should think before they act. If children are being abused they should talk to an adult they know will help them and treat them with respect.” I think this is significant because people will be able to get good advice on what to do if you are in this situation. Another sentence that I found was: “Firstly, it is clear that parents are abusing drugs and hurting their children physically. This matters because the children are in danger of being hurt or even being killed.” This stood out for me because it addresses a very important issue because people can be KILLED as a result of drug abuse.I do agree with you that parents and children are affected negatively because of drugs. One reason I say this is because the parents will become very sick and uncontrollable. Another reason I agree with you is because the children will be physically and mentally abused by the parents if they overdosed. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because this topic is delicate but important to know about.

    • Dear Abraham,
      This topic covered is very crucial and often forgotten. Its important to know that children are being affected daily by matters like drugs both physically and emotionally. They are in high danger of getting hurt and abused by the substances, i agree with you 100% The children of today are the children of our future so we want to make sure they get every help they need to succeed for us in the future, Thank you for sharing your thoughts Abraham!

    • I thought your article was very interesting. And I completely agree with you. I feel as if parents that have a hard time controlling their habits with drug abuse, I think they will have an even harder time controlling and taking care of their kids.

    • Dear Abraham,

      Thank you for your moving writing and your analysis. I especially want to know more about your line: “They are limiting us by making us watch things that will benefit us such as news.” What do you mean by this? Are you referring to fake news? Do you think that the government is purposefully changing our news like in your book.

      Keep on writing!
