This is a pretty simple one. Have trouble sleeping and have some Ambian, Lunestra, Tylenol PM in your medicine cabinet, or maybe even next to your bed? How about those root canals? Have any tylenol with Codeine, or something stronger to take the edge off? Have you had back trouble, knee trouble, shoulder trouble? ( I know getting older sucks) Anway has your doc given you some heavy duty pain pills to help you get through the day. If you have answered yes to any one of these questions you need to lock up your drugs!! Maybe your teen isn't interested, or maybe he/she is, but their friends might be. Even though your bedroom and bathroom is off limits to your kids and their friends, that doesn't mean that when you're out, a reconnaissance trip may be in progress, by either or both of these parties. Kids are curious about what's hidden in your hideaway. I can't tell you how many teens used to regale me with stories about finding their parent's porn in the bedroom closet. When I asked why they would go into their parents bedroom at all, their answer was, plain old curiosity. There is nothing more fun for a teen than finding out their parents secrets. Don't we want to know theirs???
So get a lock box. Yes it's a pain, but after listening to these teens' stories, doesn't it make sense?
