Partnership Releases 20th Annual Survey of Parental Attitudes Toward Drug Use

grade. (35 percent of 4th-5th grade parents

report they need more information, versus 51 percent of 6th-8th grade


-- Parents of 6th-8th graders are more likely to say that their kids are

reluctant to talk to them about drugs and alcohol (46 percent) than are

parents with children in 4th-5th grades (33 percent)

-- Also, 37 percent of 6th-8th grade parents feel they have little

influence over their teen or tweens decision to use drugs, versus 26

"Parents are the most powerful influencers in their kids' lives, including on their choice to try drugs or alcohol, but this study clearly shows that many parents feel increasingly overwhelmed as kids become teenagers," said Steve Pasierb, President and CEO of the Partnership. "These vulnerable years are when teens and tweens are exposed to drugs and alcohol, and parents can't let the normal turbulence and frustrations of raising teens interfere with their determination to keep their kids from risking their health. Parents have to step in and help their kids, no matter how challenging the conversation."

Some parents feel conflicted in parenting their teens because they value having a strong friendship with their child. Parents' wish to be their child's friend and their reluctance to set rules and limits for their kids increases dramatically during the middle school years.
-- PATS found 36 percent of parents with kids in grades 6th-8th agree "it

is very important to me that my child consider me a friend" compared to

20 percent of parents with children in 4th-5th grades.

-- As their children get older, parents are more likely to report that "I

would never go through my child's things when he/she was not there" --

23 percent for 4th-5th grade parents vs. 38 percent for parents with
