brokenheart74-  The best thing for you to do is talk openly to your kids about inhalant abuse and the effects of abusing a product.   Properly educate yourself on the issue so are seen as a credible sourc on the issue and so you can answer any questions they may throw at you.  Explain the harmful effects of inhalant abuse. Many parents hold back because they worry about divulging too much information and giving their children ideas when discussing inhalant abuse, but please note children these days are very creative and pass information on very quickly.

Also, because you have identified your son as an inhalant abuser, you should contact your family physician on recommendations on getting him treatment.  You may also want to do some independent research with the Center for Substance Abuse Treatment:

Any parents out there going through the same situation?
