How old is your son?

I am going to sleep right now, but I might be able to help you out...........I kind of had sugar myself and it was because I was addicted.........shoot, still am addicted to sugar.........yeah, it's weird.

Has he always done this? If not, for how long? Last, do you see him just eat the sugar?

Have you asked him why he is carrying sugar around? You may not get the truth but it may be a start in opening the lines of communication.

The other thing that would concern me is that he is hanging around someone that you know is actively using. That may be a clue right there that something is wrong.

If you are planning to sit and talk with him, please be careful how you approach him. Your words and your body language could cause him to close up. As difficult as it is, try not to be accusatory. Ask and listen.

Let us know how you are doing.
