Children daily observe  their parents taking drugs, quarreling and fighting.  Picture of ineffective parents  bring behavioral and emotional problems for innocent minds.  These children develop low self esteem and feelings of helpless ness. They also have variety of problems in school such as; learning disabilities, poor academic performance. Many of them have dropped out from schools because of not being able to bear educational expenses. Sometimes, children of drug abusers are terminated from schools because of their poor performance  and lack of interest in studies.
They also suffer from psychological problems such as; depression, anxiety,  phobia, sleep problems  and post-traumatic stress disorder. They  exhibit social withdrawal and do not prefer to make friends.  They also have fear of rejection from the society for being the children of drug abusers.  Sometimes, these problems  make them  indulge in drug abuse  and other criminal activities .  They have to work as labor to support their families in very young age. They have to go on the way full of stones for whole life.
