Uh, Your Kids Aren't Smart And I Bet They Don't Read Dear Abby, Either

I'd like to think my children are intelligent and informed enough to know how dangerous this could be, but when I mention it, I get the standby, 'Everyone does it' or 'It's fine.' I worry myself sick over this, not only for my own kids, but for all young adults. Please shed some light on this practice. Perhaps they will listen to you." . . . . more
