THE DANGERS OF BEING SPIKED IN A DRINK & BY INJECTION
Confessions of a Modern Parent
This week we grapple with a topic that is perhaps one of the most distressing for children and young adults alike - especially women and teenage girls. In recent weeks stories have emerged of a new trend to spike young women (and some young men) by injecting them with syringes.
We discuss what on Earth can be done to protect our teenage and young adult children from this awful threat. We talk to the newly formed pressure group GIRLS NIGHT IN - who are campaigning for nightclubs and late night drinking venues to up their game when it comes to the safety of their female customers. Where is this hostile attitude to women coming from? How has spiking now become yet another occupational hazard of trying to go out and have a good time. WARNING - this podcast contains some distressing content.
