Today, I walked in on my 14-year-old daughter holding a lit lighter to the underside of a spoon, which was full of baking powder. She was trying to breathe in the fumes to get high, and later confessed that she thought it's how heroin is made and used. FML

Today, my girlfriend and I went out to neighbour's just down the street and left my 12 and 14 year-old daughters at home. The 12 year-old found the fire extinguisher and thought it was whipped cream, put it in her mouth, and tried to eat it. The 14 year-old didn't even bother to call us. Luckily, the 12 year-old is fine, the stuff was safe. FML

Go lighter on the kid, will you? She's the heroine of an FML! ...Sorry, too spoon?

What's worse? That she wanted to do drugs? Or that she sucked at doing drugs?

Maybe she was just trying to make a heroin cake. It was the next step after those poppy seed cakes.

Now that this has been drug out in the open, talk with her about it and give some serious consequences for even attempting drugs.

She was trying to inhale the fumes. If I were OP I would lock away all my tin foil

Nah, the tin foil approach is reeally expensive and wasteful... Injection is cheaper and more efficient. Don't ask me how I know this... (*twitch twitch*) (*snort*)

Maybe she needs to be thrown in rehab now and save you the trouble down the road! A puff of a joint at a party is one thing when kids are 14, but thinking she was doing heroine is quite a leap from that!

I read it as "light saber" at first (" ._.)

I'd smack the shit out of her if it were my kid!

You have an idiot for a daughter.

sadly this is how kids are today.

Wait, so only kids nowadays use drugs? I could've sworn the late '60s and early '70s was full of adolescents using drugs as a sign of rebellion. Guess not.

They were, but kids used to actually get and use drugs, not just mime the motions of drug users. This is just sad.

I think the message is clear: time to illegalize spoons. Too great of a threat to kids everywhere.

Uh, yeah no. Not all of us are ignoramuses like OP's daughter, so don't generalize.

Especially those deadly assault spoons. They're the real cause of fatal obesity if you ask me.

Sadly this is how SOME commenters are today

Actually its found that more teens and adults use way more drugs today than in the 60s 70s and 80s. Though the 60s are still known as the hippie stoner age.

That's because weed is damn near everywhere nowadays, 39. Plus the Internet will teach you all sorts of things that was more or less word of mouth back in the 60's-70's. Everyone knows marijuana isn't too bad for you so more people are trying it, while back then it was thought to turn you into a devil, or a scrambled egg. Drug consumption will never die down, so the supply will never stop. It's only going to get worse as the fiends are turning younger and younger. I'm not saying all "drugs" are bad, but being a fiend means taking recreational to habitual.

I get how teens would want to try pot, but heroin!? That shit ***** up lives. My cousin was a heroin addict. He's dead now and he's left behind a pair of kids that are never going to lead a happy life.

On a random side note, 8's picture almost made me shit myself

Wow! Better have a good talk with her now and be thankful it wasn't the real stuff!!

Agreed. I've seen many many people get into that stuff throughout my life, and very few have returned.

Very punny. I hope the likes on this comment are high.

Not unless they've been breathing in some fumes.

That was terrible, I hope someone shoves a spoon up your nose.

What's worse? That she wanted to do drugs? Or that she sucked at doing drugs?

That was (sadly?) my first thought to. Not just that your daughter's apparently an idiot for wanting to do drugs, but that she's apparently an idiot PERIOD.

And the irony of me typoing 'too' while calling someone else an idiot... ¬.¬;

I think the worst part is op hasn't taught their child better.

Who said OP hasn't. Parents aren't always to blame. Sometimes even with the best kids can still be stupid by their own choice.

Wow*. For future reference, please feel free to elaborate instead of limiting yourself to just one word. You're so much better than that. I believe in you.

Make her watch Breaking Bad...she'll not want to emd up like jesses girlfriend

great. next time op catches her it will be because she started a meth lab fire. Op, do yourself a favor: dont let her watch breaking bad.

We're surrounded by a world of idiots, aren't we?

uh oh... well some one needs to hide their lighters and get someone into a drug prevention class

Once I got so baked off baking powder. Thats what it does... right?
