American College of Pediatricians’ 25 February 2019Family First Comment: If you are a parent who wants your teenager or child to grow up with a healthy, drug-free life, you are unfortunately in a kind of war zone. Why is it a war zone? Because there are many adults and teenagers who would promote marijuana and other drug use to young people. To help teens avoid the pitfalls of drugs in their youth, parents must take some pretty bold stands. Here’s the info you need – from concerned doctors….If you are a parent who wants your teenager or child to grow up with a healthy, drug-free life, you are unfortunately in a kind of war zone. Why is it a war zone? Because there are many adults and teenagers who would promote marijuana and other drug use to young people. To help teens avoid the pitfalls of drugs in their youth, parents must take some pretty bold stands. Marijuana is the most commonly used illegal drug for teenagers. (2) They are more likely to use marijuana than to use tobacco. (6) Marijuana’s effects lead to immediate and long-term problems of which many teens are unaware.How Many Teenagers are Using Marijuana?According to survey results in 2016, 38% of high school students report that they have used marijuana at some point in their life (1).Even more alarming, 68.9 % of high school seniors reported through survey that they do not think that regular marijuana smoking is harmful (2)!According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse for teens, “Recent public discussions about medical marijuana and the public debate over the drug’s legal status is leading to a reduced perception of harm among young people.” (2) The increased commonality of the drug may make it seem less threatening to teens. One-third of teenagers who smoke marijuana and that live in states with legalized medical marijuana use, obtain their marijuana from adults with prescriptions. Additionally, some teens think it can’t be very bad because it is “natural”, but many natural things like cocaine, heroin, and tobacco are far from safe. (2)Teenagers’ reported unawareness of the harm of marijuana has drastically increased since the 1980’s. The irony of this is that the harm and potency of marijuana has also increased since then. The concentration of THC (the chemical in marijuana that produces the most mind-alternating effects) is now about 3 times stronger than it was in the 1990’s! (2).Marijuana is Both Temporarily and Permanently Harmful to AdolescentsBecause adolescents’ brains are still developing, marijuana and other drug use can cause even more lasting damage to a teenage brain than to an adult user’s brain.Marijuana impairs adolescents working memory, problem solving, decision-making skills, and coordination. (2) When using marijuana, a person’s heart rate increases, causing the heart to work harder, causes difficulty in sensory perception, and creates breathing problems. (3) Marijuana decreases motivation, can lead to confusion and anxiety, even panic attacks, and often results in personality changes. (6)For adolescents, there is research showing that marijuana use alters the structure and chemical composition of the brain, and IQ, in a way that can be permanent.Adolescents who use marijuana are more likely to get lower grades, drop out of school, have physical and mental health problems, struggle with relationships, and have less future career success. (4) They are at increased risk for suicide and to develop psychoses. (6)Signs of marijuana use include (6):silly behavior and frequent laughing associated with the “high” created by THC,red eyes or eye dryness,increased appetite,irritabilitylack of motivation, reduced interest in thingstrouble with memorysmell on clothes or use of deodorizersdizzinessUnexplained money or stolen money How Can We Make a Difference?Research shows that children who report that their parents have serious conversations with them about drugs are around 50% less likely to abuse drugs. (5) It is essential to start early in explaining to children the consequences of marijuana use. Be open with them and listen to them.Children whose parents use illegal drugs or who are addicted to cigarettes or alcohol are more likely to do the same. Taking steps to quit has great benefits for your child.Helping your child to be involved in an extracurricular activity or hobby is a great way to give them a place to make good friends, offer them motivation to take care of themselves, and increase their confidence.Teenagers who are depressed or dealing with trauma are more likely to abuse drugs. (4) Help them to find appropriate outlets or professional counseling to deal with the normal emotional strain of adolescence and any chronic conditions they may have.https://www.acpeds.org/what-parents-should-know-about-marijuanaKeep up with family issues in NZ.

Afer long years of neglects and abandonment as a result of the demise of her son, Samuel Okwaraji, who died while playing for Nigeria, respite finally came the way of Janet Okwaraji from the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare.The Minister, who was represented by Bamidele Ajayi at the home of the late Super Eagles star in Abakpa-Nike in Enugu State, donated various foodstuffs and provisions as well as cash gift of N50,000. Items donated included rice, semovita and beverages.The Minister explained that the gesture was to assist the mother in her old age as a mark of honour for the contribution of the former Dinamo Zagreb forward to Nigerian football, which remains indelible years after his death.His words: “I have always been drawn to greatness and I admire people who live their lives to elevate the status of their community and nation.“Okwaraji was not just a footballer, he was an icon and great patriot.“He was a great professional who redefined football in Nigeria with many young talents benefiting from his ingenuity and sacrifices by re-writing our country’s name in gold in world football.” Responding on behalf of the family, the eldest son of the Okwarajis, Patrick Okwaraji, regretted that though their mother was slightly indisposed hence she could not receive the Minister’s representative, he expressed the family’s appreciation for the kind gesture.Patrick said he lacked the words to describe the gesture from a serving Minister to lend support to the family after several past attempts had failed.He said: “Sam died almost 30 years ago.“Everybody would appreciate if they feel he is worthy to be remembered and appreciated for the little contributions he made even when he died in his prime.“I thank the Minister for deeming it worthy to do this. “It is very encouraging that this is the first and only Minister to support the family.“We are indeed very grateful.“I honestly don’t know what to say other than to say the family appreciates this show of commitment to us, which is long overdue.”Okwaraji, who was born on May 19, 1964, died on August 12, 1989 during a World Cup qualification match against Angola at the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.RelatedPosts Dynamic Dinamo hand Atalanta sour Champions League debut Spurs, three others fight over Nigerian Enugu residents rue impact of election postponement on business The Minister had extended similar gesture to the mother of Rashidi Yekini.Tags: Abakpa Nikebamidele AjayiDinamo Zagrebjanet Okwaraji
Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury relished the opportunity to talk up their British rivalry as they received the go-ahead for an undisputed world title clash next year.The WBC has confirmed Fury has no restrictions to prevent a blockbuster battle with Joshua after WBC mandatory challenger Dillian Whyte suffered a shock loss to Alexander Povetkin last weekend.Mauricio Sulaiman, the WBC president, has revealed how Joshua was in line for a WBC title fight earlier in his career, but the governing body would still welcome a fight between their belt holder and the WBA, IBF and WBO champion. Sulaiman told Sky Sports: “Joshua fought for the IBF title when he was WBC No 2, and he received an opportunity, so we understand and appreciate that he got an opportunity and went in a different direction, however, the WBC was the first organisation to rank him, ranking in the top 10, top five.“We knew the value of Joshua.“Joshua to do an ultimate unification with Wilder, if he wins, or Fury if he retains, would be magnanimous.”Unified champion Joshua remains confident he can topple Fury, predicting how he would overpower the WBC champion during an appearance on ‘A League of Their Own.’“First six, I know I’m going to take him out,” said Joshua. “I’ve had a shorter career, so I’m fresher. Been in the deep end longer, so I’m used to the pressure.“I believe I’m going to handle the pressure and I’m going to take him out.”“I believe I’m better than Wilder, faster, whatever you want to call it. I reckon I’m going to be doing this for another 10 years.”Fury made a typically swift response on social media, saying: “I would batter Joshua inside the first round.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Facebook Twitter Google+ The lights at SU Soccer stadium shined down on Syracuse for just the second time in conference play. With its season on the line, the Orange was in the spotlight for its most important game of the season. SU fought, but the clock ran it short.“You are competing against the clock, aren’t you?” Orange head coach Phil Wheddon said. “Anytime you’re chasing the game against a team like Virginia, it’s very, very difficult.”Syracuse (7-7-2, 2-5-1 Atlantic Coast) suffered a deflating loss to No. 13 Virginia (9-3-4, 4-1-3), 3-1, putting SU’s season in jeopardy. The Orange challenged, but ultimately fell short as Virginia pushed ahead and bled time, “taking valuable seconds off the clock,” Wheddon said.With the loss, the Orange is one game closer to likely elimination from ACC tournament contention. Before the game, it sat at just four points, third-worst in the conference. With only eight teams qualifying for the conference tournament, the Orange remain six points out of the final spot.SU needed to win each of its last three games to solidify a spot in the top eight. In just the first game of that quest, like it has done so many times in conference play, it fell short.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We know where we stand,” Wheddon said. “There are nine teams in the same spot that we are. Everyones checking twitter and checking the scores.”The Orange played five ranked opponents before Thursday night. It hadn’t beaten any of them. This game, which players called a “must win” just a day earlier, proved to be much of the same.Early on, Virginia pressured the ball far up into the Syracuse box. In the 15th minute, Hana Kerner fired a cross that made it into the interior of the Syracuse defense. Alex Lamontagne put a head on it, but it was right to Betsy Brandon who paused, fired and silenced the Orange crowd with a goal.All hope for SU was not lost, though.In the 27th minute, Virginia, again, provided heavy pressure up into the Syracuse third. The ball got away from the Cavaliers and Taylor Bennett controlled the ball and looked downfield. The sophomore launched a cross to the speedy Sydney Brackett who flew in the open field, fought off Virginia defender and crossed the ball to a wide open Georgia Allen. Allen nosedived at the ball and knocked it into the right corner of the goal. Suddenly, Syracuse had life, but the clock continued to run.“We deserved the goal as a team,” Allen said. “You always have to believe you have a chance.”The game was filled with Orange successes. Two potentially season-preserving saves highlighted the final 10 minutes of the first half. The crowd continued to cheer as Syracuse inched closer to the Cavaliers goal out of the halftime break. It silenced and tensed up as Brackett sailed another cross in the direction of Allen right around the Cavaliers goal, which was grabbed by Virginia keeper Laurel Ivory.“For at least 75 minutes of the game,” Wheddon said, “we were on equal terms with them.”In the 60th minute, the Orange suffered its second lapse of the night, as Virginia played the ball deep into the Orange third and headed the ball above the outstretched arms of Brosnan. The discouraged SU keeper sluggishly slid on her knees to the right corner of the net to retrieve the ball. The Orange had just 30 minutes to find an equalizer.As Syracuse scrambled to tie, it was charged a penalty in its own box. Brosnan and the crowd lamented the call. Virginia was awarded a penalty kick that Brianna Westrup put out of reach of Brosnan’s left glove. She didn’t even wait for the ball to hit the net before she charged towards the referee and gave a few choice words. She knew, just like everyone else, that the goal moved the Cavaliers further out of reach.“Until the penalty kick,” Wheddon said, “we thought we were going to counter them and find another opportunity.“It changed the game.”With just 12:49 left on the game clock, the Orange had to do something it hadn’t done in over 50 minutes, twice. As the clock struck zero, with Brosnan at midfield, the Orange found itself out of luck and out of time.“It was devastating…” Bennett said. “It’s always disappointing when you don’t get the result you deserve.” Comments Published on October 19, 2017 at 11:34 pm Contact Michael: firstname.lastname@example.org | @MikeJMcCleary
