Minors and young adults face distinctive pressures and burdens which can’t always be understood by the adults. Students may get influenced by social anxiety and take the wrong path.
From the home environment to social pressures, everything can contribute to the use of drugs among minors which may lead to a decline in education rates altogether.
The most common behavioural patterns of the student using drugs include deteriorating grades, lack of interest in educational subjects, low level of commitment and emerging chances of dropping out early.
The students taking drugs might seem overly tired or hungry. They might seem disinterested in the things being taught in class.
There is a need to educate children about the harmful effects of drugs from an early age to tackle these concerns.
Parents and teachers also need to adopt a kind and trusting attitude with minors, so that they feel comfortable sharing their issues with them. Building trust and enhancing communication quality with students can help them stay away from drugs.
