Parents' images of the typical teen party as generally drug and alcohol-free are drastically out of whack with reality, according to a survey out today from the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University.
The 11th annual survey of teenagers and parents finds that half of teens who attend parties say alcohol, drugs or both are available, but 80% of parents believe their teens attend substance-free parties.
Well Moral Decline does go downwards, it's that simple. Children inherit what the parents establish.
This is where we are headed.
1] This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.  For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, DISOBEDIENT TO PARENTS, unthankful, unholy,  Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,  Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;  Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof, - [(Arminianism/Liberalism)] - from such turn away.
You bet they forgot, they don't want to "go there."
Remember the '50s movie "Rebel without a Cause?" It's still the same problem. Parents whistle in the dark while their children are left to themselves, to be debauched by their dissolute, nihilistic schoolmates. And don't think "Christian" schools are necessarily better; their influence ends when classes are dismissed.
Correcting this requires a wholesale lifestyle change.
