Teen deaths due to suicide and drunk-driving have also dropped dramatically; and the vast majority of drug overdoses have always occurred in adults, often in middle age. Teen pregnancy and drug use are also down dramatically. Teens today are far more likely to make it safely to adulthood than their parents were, but parents are continuously told that teen risks escalate in each succeeding generation..."

After the huge response to her column in the Washington Post's Outlook section, Szalavitz ponders some further issues on the vexing problem of tough love as a therapeutic device for correcting wayward teenage behavior.

In the case of two 18-year-old college students, Maria Pesantez and Mellie Nicole Carballo, the deaths are blamed on overdoses of heroin that was either "too pure" or was cut with poison and was taken with alcohol and cocaine.
