Should parents alert the authorities about their child's drug use?
The Doctors weigh in on the case of a dad who called the police on his daughter after he discovered she had psychedelic mushrooms growing in her room in an aquarium. Was this the best way to solve this issue or did this father overreact?
According to the father's online post, this is not the first time he has discovered she was using drugs. The teen was arrested, booked and released to her mom's custody and is awaiting a court date. The man received harsh online criticism for calling the police on his daughter, but what do The Doctors think?
We asked our studio audience about this tactic and 67 percent, said no they would not call the cops on their child. Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon agrees, saying he would never do this to his children, while clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho says she would call the police.
Parenting expert Dr. Deborah Gilboa weighs in, saying the dad "did the right thing." She feels since he made prior attempts to stop her drug use, and since the teen was growing mushrooms in her room, she feels this was "unacceptable." She notes the possibility that the teen was intending to distribute the mushrooms takes the issue to another level.
Dr. Gilboa feels these actions should have consequences and children should experience these consequences. Do you agree? Tells us what you think!
