Virtues of Surah Al-Fatihah:
There are many virtues of with this Surah;

2) It is a pillar of the prayer;
The Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) said that:
“Whoever does not recite Surah Al Fatihah in his prayer, his prayer is invalid”.
3) Hazrat Abu Saeed al-Khudri(RA) said:
Once we were having a journey while we were passing a men came to us and said that our king is suffering from scorpion bite if you will cure him we can give you something in return,So I went with him and i recited Surah Al-Fatiha and his diease was cured.As in returned they were given some sheeps.
When this topic was discussed by holy prophet so he asked why you only recite Surah Al-Fatiha so he told that he only knew it and as a result whole quran in cure for us.

Tafseer of verses of Surah Al-Fatihah:
Surah Al-Fatihah start with In the Name of Allah (SWT) known as Bismillah.
1) In the Name ofAllah (SWT):
Its first Ayat is “in the name of Allah the most Benifical the Most Mercifull.”
It is recited before doing any work or action.
2)Al Hamdulillah:
Alhamdulillah, also known as Tahmid .Which meaning “praise be to the Lord”, and translated as “thank Lord!”.
3) Meaning of Al-Rahman and Al-Raheem:
These are the names and atributes given to Allah that he is very Rehman and Raheem on his peoples.These words are orinated from man and emm which mean he is very mercyfull. This is why Allah says: “Call upon Allah or call upon al-Rahman; by whichever name you call upon Him, to Him belong the most excellent names.” Allah other names can be used as words to describe others: words like rahim (merciful), sami (hearing), and basir (seeing). About the Prophet (peace be upon him) Allah says: “With the believers he is gentle and merciful”.Allah says: “Verily We created the human being from a drop of mingled sperm and made him hearing (sami) and seeing (basir)”.
Another opinion is that the difference between them is that al-Rahman denotes the presence of the attribute of mercy, while al-Rahim refers to the expression of Allah’s Mercy and its affects on Creation. Based on this opinion, Allah is al-Rahman and al-Rahim with respect to both this world and the next And Allah knows best.
4)All Praised is by Allah:
In second ayat praised of allah almighty is being discussed that he is lord of all the world.
5) Verse 3:
Allah is the master and Mercy of the people and for the day of Judgment.He is the master and he will be all upon on us what we did in our lifes. We should therefore not allow ourselves to misled. We should always remember that he knows very well that what we are doing. We all know that Allah (SWT) has appointed “Karaman Katebeen” to write every good and bad deed of us. We should never be unaware of our existence. If someone did something wrong to you, he will surely be punished on the day of judgment as Allah is the best judge. Also, if someone is doing good deeds, he will be awarded for his struggles.

6)Verse 4:
When we workship in front of Allah Alimighty it is basically that we are demanding help from him for our life that please grant us his mercy and help on us for our lifes.Basically if we see this Surah Al-Faitha it is basically a dua for us that we says in front of Allah Almighty.d O’ Allah our worship, obedience, submission and devotion is for You alone, and we only serve You. O’ Allah we know that You are the Lord of the Universe and You have the power over everything, therefore, we only turn to You for help, for our needs and requirements.
Verse 5:
In this verse the guidance is being asked from Allaha that please guide us the right way and path to success in life today and for the day of judgment.We want to meet our lifes as for as Prophet Muhammad(S.A.W).Keep us the guidance for our betterment and keep us away from the sins and sinnerse of this world.We says that “OH My Lord we workship you and we seeks help and guidance from you”. We can only get lost in labyrinths of doubt and uncertainty due to lack of true knowledge. Let us hold firm to the straight path that Allah Almighty has opened up for us.
Verse 6:
In this verse the right path and right way has been asked from Allah that guide us the right path and right way from which we can seek the betterment of this world and the day of Judgment. The path of those upon whom you bestowed and not of those who have evoked and not of those who are astray.
Verse 7:
This verse has to be related with above verse 6.As before we has prayed god for guidance and betterment of our selfs.We have asked god for way to good deeds not to astray.Astray are those who are not in search of the truth. Those who have known what is right but their weaknesses have led them far away.In this last ayat we have to to a moral that who nows the right and truth but hides from world only gained Allah Anger because Allah bestowed him that thing but he did not so he should have anger just and after never hope of usefull things.And other who did not search for truth may should go to Astray.We pray from Allah to keep away from this type of person or people in life.

And so when we recite the seven verses of Surah Fatiha, we’re actually assisting our Ruh to spiritually transport itself through these seven heavens and bond itself with Allah (swt), Who is high, above and beyond these heavens. Since Fatiha means Opening, this Surah opens the door for our Ruh to begin its spiritual journey, the goal of which is to connect itself with Allah (swt). Each verse of this Surah forms a step to cross each heaven thus by the time we have recited all seven verses with full concentration of heart and mind, we should be able to experience a communion and joy unlike any other.


Juvenile crime is and has been a relevant topic in New Zealand and the world for many years, and I was interested in what, when, where and why juveniles commit crimes, therefore I chose the topic of “Juvenile crime in New Zealand”. My main research inquiry question is “What were the major causes of juvenile crime in New Zealand in the past 10 years?” My key questions are: “How are juvenile offenders sentenced in New Zealand and is sentencing effective for preventing reoffending?”, “What were the most common ethnicity/ies and age/s of juvenile offenders in New Zealand in the past 10 years?”, “What were the most common type/s of crime among juveniles in New Zealand in the past 10 years?”, and “Who are considered juveniles in New Zealand?”

How are juvenile offenders sentenced and is sentencing effective for preventing reoffending?

According to Te Ara’s website, depending on the circumstances, different procedures are used to punish juvenile offenders, including: Warnings from the police, Youth Aid officer meetings, family group conferences including the offender and their family, the victim, a police officer and a coordinator, and court cases in the Youth Court if the offender is aged 14 to 16. If the case is more serious, the juvenile offender will be dealt with in the District Court or the High Court. “In 2014, 43% of offenders were dealt with through alternative action by Police Youth Aid (for example, written apologies, community work, reparation and counselling.” In the “Youth Justice Indicators Summary Report” written by the “Ministry of Justice” in April 2018, it discusses becoming part of the Youth Justice System, being part of the system, and reappearing in the system. I think that the point of view of this source is not opinionated and unbiased and I also think that it is a reliable source because there is a date of publishing included, and the spelling and grammar are correct. This source is a government source, therefore it is less likely to be biased.

According to’s website, almost one-third of youth were given orders due to their offending. “In 2017, youth were most often charged with burglary (25%), theft (19%) or robbery (15%) offences as their most serious offence”. In 2017, and 600 youth (32%) were given a sentence or order. The most common out of these were ‘monetary, confiscation, or disqualification’, which accounted for 22%, (or 129 youth) of all youth crime in New Zealand in 2017, and also, ‘supervision or community work’, which accounted for 19% (or 111 youth) of all youth crime in New Zealand in 2017. ‘Supervision with residence’ (96 youth), ‘education and rehabilitation programmes’ (12 youth), ‘supervision with activity’ (87 youth), are included as other orders. Out of the small number of youth who were sentenced in court and received an adult sentence to serve fully (36 youth), most of them were given home detention or imprisonment for highly serious offending.

Brinley McIntosh, author of the HMA article “Reducing recidivism rates among young offenders”, discusses the attributes of juvenile offenders, group work among juveniles, CBT with juvenile offenders, and inspiring juvenile offenders. I think that the point of view of this source is not opinionated and unbiased and I also think that it is a reliable source because there is a listed author, there is a date of publishing included, and the sources in the website are cited.

According to Bennett (2009), “Current literature around young offenders and recidivism rates shown that in NZ there is a core group of young offenders that continue to reoffend despite going through the youth justice system.” This tells us that sentencing is ineffective for preventing reoffending in New Zealand. To address the rate of recidivism, in 2010, the Young Persons and Their Families Amendment Bill put forward and carried out alterations to the Children, Young Persons and Their Families Act (1989) to make way for harsher sentences (either residence or community based) for young offenders and also their families. This amendment elongated the length of time young offenders were able to be sentenced to supervision and/or residence orders, and also made way for requested parenting education programmes for both: young offenders who are parents, and also, those who are parents of young offenders. They needed to do this to inhibit offending and also reoffending. This tells us that these individuals come from violent and/or poor etc. households, which may influence their recidivism greatly.

According to McIntosh, the amendment also accentuated the need for mentoring, rehabilitation, and support for young offenders as well as their families, which are used as preventative measures towards recidivism. Subsequently, there was a powerful push towards developing and implementing programmes that lower recidivism rates of young offenders by aiming at criminogenic needs, and also promoting and teaching prosocial skills. McIntosh claims that there is only a small amount of controversy in the literature that Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and its variants are the most effective treatment for reducing recidivism among youth offenders. McIntosh also claims that the most economical and effective way to give interventions to young offenders in residential facilities is in a group layout.

I disagree with this statement because to me, imprisonment seems like it would be the most effective preventative measure for recidivism among juvenile offenders. I believe this because it would essentially “keep juveniles off the streets” and give them less opportunity to re-offend. I also think that when more juveniles are participating in training, education, or employment, the less likely these individuals are to offend, as “idle hands are the devil’s

playthings”, meaning if an individual is not occupied, they have a higher chance of getting into trouble.

According to an infographic summary by the Ministry of Justice, in 2017, the majority of juveniles (78%) had charges proved, most acted in accordance with plans agreed at Family Group Conferences, and a third of them were given orders for their offending, including 129 confiscation, disqualification, or monetary orders, 111 supervision or community work orders, 96 supervision with residence orders, 87 intensive supervision or supervision with activity orders, and 36 adult sentences for serious offending. The amount of juveniles charged in court has decreased by 25% since 2013 and by 5% since 2016, (possibly because in recent times juveniles have fewer opportunities to offend, which may be because they are involved in training, education, or employment), and only accounted for under 3% of all individuals charged in court in 2017.

What were the most common ethnicity/ies and age/s of juvenile offenders in New Zealand in the past 10 years?

According to, “there have been very large reductions in the number of… young people aged 14 to 16 who offended (…down from 14,183 to 5,188 young people).” I assumed that the offence rate of youth (aged 14 to 16) would have increased between 2009/10 and 2016/17, but I was wrong. The offence rate has actually decreased, to my surprise. In 2016/17, the most common ethnicity for juvenile offending was M?ori with 642 cases, the second most common was Pasifika with 256 cases, and the least common was European/Other with 131 cases. In 2009/10, the most common ethnicity for juvenile offending was M?ori with 1,555 cases, the second most common was Pasifika with 654 cases, and the least common was European/Other with 504 cases. From 2008 to 2017, the percentage of M?ori juvenile offenders rose over that decade, from 49% to 64%. The number of juveniles charged with theft, burglary, or assault has been decreasing since 2013, which may be surprising to some, but the number of juveniles charged with robbery has increased since 2015 to 2017, which may not be surprising to some. This could be due to the stigma in New Zealand regarding juvenile crime. It has been said that the youth justice

system is ‘racist’ towards M?ori, which I agree with. Nevertheless, the number of juveniles charged has decreased significantly among all ethnicities over the decade spanning from 2008 to 2017. The changes are as follows: M?ori changed from 2,421 to 1,197 individuals (a decrease of 51%) European changed from 1,749 to 426 individuals (a decrease of 76%), and Pasifika from 501 to 174 individuals (a decrease of 65%). Theft is different to robbery because theft is taking property that doesn’t involve interaction between people. An individual simply takes property that they do not own. Comparing robbery and theft, robbery is where an individual takes property that involves interaction between people but involves intimidation, coercion, and/or force. Burglary, in comparison to both robbery and theft, is where an individual enters a residence or building while intending to commit a felonious crime, such as theft. Burglary doesn’t require interaction between individuals or property to be stolen. From 2008 to 2017, the number of juveniles charged in court had significantly declined (from approximately 160 per 10,000 juveniles), to approximately 60 per 10,000 juveniles), and the overall juvenile offending rate decreased 63% between 2009/10 and 2016/17, from 761 per 10,000 individuals to 285 per 10,000 individuals. It may be thought that the rate of juvenile crime is increasing but in fact, the rate is actually decreasing, which I am surprised about, and may be to other people’s surprise. During that time, the decrease in the offending rate has been much larger for European/Other (74%) than for Pasifika (61%), or M?ori (59%). The age ratio of juvenile offenders has greatly stayed the same since 2013, whereof the offenders aged 14-16, 24% of those were 14 years old, 32% were 15 years old, and 41% of those were 16 years old. I am not surprised about the age ratio.

What were the most common type/s of crime among juveniles in New Zealand in the past 10 years?

In New Zealand in 2016/17, the percent by offence division if the most common type/s of crime among young people aged 14 to 16 are as follows (in descending order): The highest percentage of youth crime was theft at 26%, ‘other’ at 20%, unlawful entry and/or burglary at

16.6%, causing injury at 13.2%, public disorder at 10%, property damage at 8.5%, and finally, robbery and/or extortion at 5.7%.

I think that theft is so high because many youths have chances to thieve, rather than have opportunities to commit other crimes. Although theft is less serious than, for example, violent crimes because people’s lives are not necessarily in danger throughout a theft, they are throughout a violent crime.

The “Youth Justice Statistics 2014/15” (about England and Wales), composed by the “Youth Justice Board/Ministry of Justice” on the 28th of January 2016, discuss, for example, moving through the Youth Justice System, proven offences by juveniles and measures of crime underwent by juveniles. According to Youth Justice Board/Ministry of Justice, In England and Wales, in the year ending March 2015, the main types of juvenile offence were; violence against the person (24%), theft and handling (17%) and criminal damage (12%). Additionally, there were 2,000 sexual offences in the same year in which a young person was cautioned or convicted, which accounted for 2% of all juvenile offences.

Who are considered juveniles in New Zealand?

According to Te Ara’s website, regarding the law, young people are those who are aged 14–16. “…They can be charged and prosecuted for an offence and dealt with by the youth justice system. Those aged 17 and over are treated as adults in the general court system.”

I think that this age is too young to get treated like an adult and go to prison with adults and I think the age should be raised to 18. I assumed that the offence rate of youth (aged 14 to 16) would have increased between 2009/10 and 2016/17, but I was wrong. The offence rate has actually decreased, to my surprise.


In conclusion, by answering the previous inquiry questions, I have been able to answer my main research inquiry question: “What were the major causes of juvenile crime in New Zealand in the past 10 years?”. Research proves that juvenile crime is caused by financial hardship (Scientific studies have shown that it is not just a juvenile’s brain that turns them

into a criminal, but also poverty that changes an innocent juvenile into an inveterate criminal. If teens see that others such as their friends are more financially stable and richer than them,
so they eventually begin to look for illegal ways to tide themselves over, and once they start offending, they are usually small crimes such as theft to accomplish their daily costs, but as time goes on, they re-offend and continue to re-offend. Peer pressure is another major cause of juvenile crime as surveys conducted show that teens that are friends with criminals have a higher likelihood to become eventually a criminal themselves, as it is reasonably natural for the individuals to be influenced by the criminals. Teens prefer committing crimes in groups because it can be more exciting and also lowers their likelihood of getting caught offending.

I believe that one way to combat peer pressure and also juvenile crime is to make sure that juveniles’ friends are not negatively influencing the juveniles.

Additionally, a lack of care from family is another major cause of juvenile crime as neglected juveniles are more likely to become criminals because they become violent and angry when they lack love and affection that they feel they deserve from the family. They then use their negative energy to commit crimes. Furthermore, bullying is another major cause of juvenile crime. Bullying is a crime and it also fuels other crimes. Multiple studies show that juveniles who bully others tend to become criminals later in life. Abusive behaviour promotes juvenile crime and juveniles who demonstrate abusive behaviour or are in a group of friends who demonstrate abusive behaviour wind up committing crimes. A few cases have been reported where the victims of bullying become criminals only for the purpose of retaliating on society. Lastly, drug and alcohol abuse are also major causes of juvenile crime. It is a crime to take drugs or drink alcohol as a minor, and it also causes various other crimes. Juveniles’ judgement is impaired when they abuse drugs or alcohol, which increases the likelihood of committing crimes, such as property damage or public disorder. When a juvenile becomes intoxicated, their judgement and reasoning become obscure, causing them to commit a crime that they might not have wanted to commit originally. In 2017 specifically, the highest percentage of youth crime was theft at 26%, ‘other’ at 20%, unlawful entry and/or burglary at 16.6%, causing injury at 13.2%, public disorder at 10%, property damage at 8.5%, and the lowest percentage was robbery and/or extortion at 5.7%.

I think that the age of 17 is too young and too harsh to get treated like an adult and go to prison with adults and I believe that the age should be raised to 18.

The research indicated that overall, depending on the circumstances, different methods are used to punish juvenile offenders, of example, including warnings from the police, Youth Aid officer meetings, family group conferences including the offender and their family, the victim,

a police officer and a coordinator, and court cases either in the Youth Court if the offender is aged 14 to 16. But for more serious cases, the juvenile offender will be dealt with in the District Court or the High Court. Almost one-third of youth were given orders due to their offending. Studies show that in 2017, the most prevalent charges given to juveniles were confiscation, monetary, or disqualification. Research suggests that overall, sentencing is not effective for reoffending, because studies show that in New Zealand there is a main group of juvenile offenders that continue to offend regardless of being dealt with by the youth justice system. Research shows that in 2017, the most common ethnicity of juvenile offenders in New Zealand was M?ori with 642 cases, the second most common was Pasifika with 256 cases, and the least common was European/Other with 131 cases. Compared to 2009/10, the most common ethnicity for juvenile offending in New Zealand was M?ori with 1,555 cases, the second most common was Pasifika with 654 cases, and the least common was European/Other with 504 cases. Research also shows that in 2017, the most common age of offenders in New Zealand was 16 years old (41%), the second most common age was 15 years old at 32%, and lastly, the third most common age was 14 years old at 24%. These statistics did not surprise me. Additionally, compared to 2013, the age ratio has largely stayed consistent. In 2016/17, the most common type of youth crime in New Zealand was theft at 26%, the second most common type of youth crime was ‘other’ at 20%, and the third most common type of youth crime was unlawful entry and/or burglary at 16.6%. When compared to England and Wales, in 2015, the most common type of offence was violence against the person (24%), followed by theft and handling (17%), and then criminal damage (12%). Lastly, during my research, I have found that juveniles (regarding the law) are those aged 14–16.

“A culture is a way of life of a group of people–the behaviours, beliefs, values, and symbols that they accept, generally without thinking about them, and that are passed along by communication and imitation from one generation to the next” (Thill, 2018). Culture reflects the total way of life a society. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), cultural competence is our willpower and ability to understand and respect the different cultures and communicate effectively with people from other cultures. Being culturally competent is important for nurses and midwives as it reduces the possible dangers due to the misinterpretation of the patient thereby contributing to their well-being. Besides briefly reflecting on my own culture and the different cultures of the world, this essay will also discuss the measures taken by nurses and midwives in order to be more culturally competent.
My culture and my values:
I come from Tamil Nadu, which is in the southern part of India. My parents are originally from a state called Kerala, but currently live in Tamil Nadu. I speak four languages including the regional languages of these two states. My Father is the only son of my grandparents and so we live as a nuclear family which consists of my grandmother, my parents and myself. I am emotionally every attached with my family and I cannot go even a day without talking to everybody at home. I come from a Christian family and even though I am a little confused about the concept of God, I believe and trust in the existence of God. We are generally superstitious about many things. One good example of this would be a case that came into notice (Drielsma,2013), where it was found that the parents of an Indian girl, who was born with four arms, refused a pro bono offer of a surgery, because they believed their child was the four-armed Hindu God (Laxmi) reborn. Respecting elders is a very important aspect of my culture and we do not question them or go against what they say or hurt them in any way. Even if I were to marry somebody, it would be decided by my parents and all the elders of my family, as that is a sign of respecting their life experiences. Religion and the society’s opinion are important parts of our lives. Indian parents prefer arranged marriage system as there is no unnecessary complication of their children falling in love with people of a different religion or caste or lower status. Friends and family are important in my life. I make friends very easily as I ca put people at ease. In India words like “thank you”, “welcome” or “please” among friends or family is considered as a violation of the closeness of the relationship and often considered sarcastic. We also avoid using the word “no”, instead we say something synonymous to “I will try my best”, so that we don’t sound rude or hurt people with words. Relatives and friends are considered family and we drop in on them when we feel like it, without any prior appointments, as they are considered “family” too. When it comes to food, we prefer it spicy and we use hands to eat food, as we see, smell, touch and taste the food we eat. Moreover, we consider it to be both a physical and spiritual contact with food, because as per our belief, each finger represents the five elements of nature (space, air, fire, water, earth). But we never use our left hand for eating, as, it is considered impure. This is because there are no tissue papers available in the toilets and people use water and their left hands! Also, footwear is considered unclean and we avoid wearing them inside our home or holy places. When greeting people, it is very rare that we shake hands, instead we acknowledge them with nods and smiles with a “hello”, as physical contact of the opposite sex is not encouraged in our society. Alcohol, smoking. Partying or clubbing are taboo subjects in in my family and, at a society level, it leads to negative stereotypes. I am a strong believer of “KARMA” (you get what you do to others) and this influences most of the decisions I make.

There are so many different cultures in the world and every culture is different and unique in its own way. This is what makes the world a colourful place to live in.

The illicit diamond trade in Zimbabwe has been reported taking place since October of 2008. At that time, the people of Zimbabwe were entering an unlicensed ‘mine’ to dig up diamonds to sell. However, later that month the army moved in, in force. At least 150 diggers were killed; some were chewed and torn apart by dogs. Only a few survived. Now, only last year an article was written by the Guardian (by Simon Allison) about how the diamonds are not being used to “transform the country’s economic prospects and, ultimately, the lives of its people” but instead “billions of dollars have been lost to private companies with links to the military, the intelligence services, and President Robert Mugabe.” This illicit trade centres on Zimbabwe, and one of the biggest diamond deposits in the world.

Social Impacts:
There are many types of diamonds, which are mined all over the globe. In northern Russia, there is a large craton Diamond-bearing and barren kimberlite that is very rare. There are also large cratons in north Canada and many smaller ones in southern America. But, more importantly there is a small craton in eastern Zimbabwe. In this craton, there is Barren kimberlite (Fig 3). The locals had been mining for some profits until the government took over in 2009. However, when the government took over the ‘operation’ they allegedly killed over 150 people. More recently, Anjin Investments, a Chinese investment company, has not been fulfilling its agreement with the Zimbabwean government and not paying its royalties. However, even after every foreign mining company’s license was cancelled, Anjin have been allowed back into Marange. This is because Anjin Investments are shareholders include “Anhui Foreign Economic Construction Company Ltd of China (AFECC) and Matt Bronze” which is an investment company controlled by Zimbabwe’s military. This means that although in the past Anjin has not paid the Zimbabwean government a percent of their profit, they are the only foreign mining company with a license because of military links. Additionally, the Zimbabwean government promised to use the diamond money to better the people, they are still clearly not honouring that promise.
Environmental Impacts:
In Africa, and Zimbabwe particularly, reckless diamond mining is unfortunately quite common. For every one carat of diamonds mined, 1750 tons of earth is mined and of 2014, the average engagement diamond ring size is 1.25 carats. In some extreme cases, the abandoned mining pits can cause ecosystems to shut down and collapse. The animals leave the area because of the changing of the landscape and noise pollution and the topsoil (which has the most organic matter and microorganisms out of all of the layers of soil) erodes which leads to the land being almost permanently unsuitable for farming. Additionally, the pits begin to fill with stagnant rainwater and become a popular breeding spot for mosquitos, which can be detrimental, especially in developing countries like Zimbabwe.

History and Background:
The origin of the sugarcane juice consumption is linked to the exploration of the sugarcane. About 195 countries grow the crop to produce 1.5 billion tonnes. The world’s largest producer of sugar cane out and away is Brazil followed by India. Uses of sugar cane include the production of sugar, sugarcane juice, Falernum, molasses, rum, soda, and ethanol for fuel.

Sugarcane is grown in Pakistan from the past times attributed to the mighty river Indus and its tributaries. The region, referred to as Indus valley civilization historically had the knowledge of sugarcane production and also the extraction of juice. Traditionally sugarcane juice and pealed sugarcane cut in small pieces for chewing is used round the year.
Sugarcane Production in Pakistan:
Sugarcane juice is greatly appreciated in Pakistan, particularly in Sindh and Punjab, where the sugarcane culture has always been dominant, not only due to its flavor, but also because of its great energy worth. Pakistan captures a vital position among the countries which produce sugarcane. It is on fifth position in sugarcane production. Area and Cane yield of some cane producing countries is given in the following table:

Sugarcane production trends:
Sugarcane is grown on an area of more or less million hectares in Pakistan. The Punjab shares 62%, Sindh 26% and N.W.F.P. shares 16% of the entire area. The national average cane yield is 47 t ha-1.Sindh with 53 t ha-1 is the chief province followed by N.W.F.P. (45 t ha-1) and Punjab (40 t ha-1).
Cane yield potential of some commercial sugarcane varieties in the country:

In todays ever so evolving business world ,the strength of a business lies in its ability to adhere to the law (Tyler, 2006),(Gonzalez-Perez & Leonard, 2015) also suggests that a business longevity and prosperity in the market is affected by environmental and social matters. I therefore introduce The United Nations (UN) global compact which embodies those very important aspects in the business world. In the year 2000 a gathering of 40 companies obligated themselves to a set of principles under four issues being human rights, labour, the environment and anti-corruption (Kelly, 2015) . According to (Gonzalez-Perez & Leonard, 2015) the global compact was put in solely to encourage the globalisation of social and environmental matters in business. I will be providing this written project so as to outline and critically analyse the benefits and challenges that are faced by businesses, whether international or national, in committing to the global compact under Labour issues. This project also seeks to provide solutions or recommendations to the challenges under labour issues.
Durkheim (2014) defines labour issues in relation to the labour problem as the fundamental injustices that occur in the work place as a result of neglecting human and employment rights within such spaces. The working force being Labour is a vital resource to the prosperity of any organisation because without it the day to day running of the organisations can not be met (Herod, 2017). There are several existing issues which occur in the workplace that are negligent of such rights at a global scale hence the need to add labour issues as a principle to the Global Compact Initiative. For the purpose of this assignment I will be discussing child labour, forced labour as well as workplace discrimination as crucial issues in the protection and assurance of employment rights.

As defined by (Nanjuda, 2008) child labour is an individual below the age of 14 years enrolled for work in an arranged setting. According to Javier (2007) the acceptable working age in China is 16 years whilst according to Arendt (2018) the legal age of work (which is contingent on working environment and working hours) is 14 years in the United States of America. This shows the varying gaps in the exact legal age for employment in different countries, however for the purpose of this assignment I will use the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (1990) which refers to child labour as the employment of anyone under the age of 18. There are certain advantages that can be related of child employment which include them having the ability to help provide not only for their immediate needs but for those of their families as well. Cockburn (2010) argues that child labour is seen as a norm in many developing countries due to the general expectation to contribute towards the local economy. Contrary to this, Burgan (2012) argues that child labour not only exposes children to risks such as human trafficking and child abuse, it also deprives them of access to basic education and the right to enjoy their childhood years.
There are several approaches that companies, society and individuals can take to curb child labour. These include purchasing goods from legitimate companies and avoiding those that actively participate in child labour e.g. avoiding sweatshops and companies that have been accused of recruiting children to do their industrial work. Another manner could be educating all stakeholders on the importance of children’s rights and allowing them access to enjoy their childhood. Hirsch (2016) argues that a lot of the irrational things human beings do are as a result of misinformation on the cause and effect and the consequences of the decisions we take, by educating ourselves and those around us we change the narrative and lead to a more informed and more responsible society.

Chin (2009) refers to workplace discrimination as the prejudiced and unfair treatment of people in the workplace based on negative biases that could be caused by a variety of issues including religion, sex, disability and race. Some forms of discrimination can be explicit where people know that they are actively disengaging and depriving others of opportunity based on who they are e.g. In conservative societies women who do technical work are heavily discriminated against in the workplace. Benatar (2012) argues that gender discrimination is often a result of societal misperceptions of the role of women in business. There are however also instances where this discrimination is not done cautiously and where employers might not recognize that they are being discriminatory, this could happen through the implementation of laws that side-line certain groups or the lack thereof of laws that could protect such groups. According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (2017) The Hershey Company was sued for disability discrimination for suspending and later firing Kristina Williams after she was diagnosed with spinal stenosis, this is an example of direct discrimination in the workplace by an employer. Gregory (2003) argues that workplace discrimination is detrimental because it deprives those that are discriminated against of essential freedoms like speech, association and expression. Craig (2007) argues that due to the bias against some groups in the workplace, productivity is reduced which eventually leads to the corporation bearing the cost of a failing workforce.

In order to solve workplace discrimination, it is also important that we educate everyone in the workplace about the harms of this. Discrimination is often born of psychological and historical biases and requires unlearning in order for people to correct their behaviour (Benatar 2012). Another way could be by adopting minority friendly laws within businesses for example, the adoption of laws which are pro gender parity and pro disability protection. Whilst arguing for the introduction of gender equity laws in the workplace Tulshyan (2016) asserts that a balanced work environment and diverse opinions are vital for the success of any business.

Blackmon (2012) defines forced labour as the use of intimidation or violence to get people to do work. This means the work is performed involuntarily and through coercion and can occur through the use of actual violence, threat of violence or intimidation of people based on their economic or social standing. Costa (2009) refers to modern day slavery, coercive recruitment and compulsory recruitment as some examples of forced labour. It is therefore important to note that forced labour does not necessarily mean the absence of pay and compensation. Lindley (2014) argues that after the economic crisis of 2008, people have grown increasingly vulnerable to the circumstances they find themselves under and are therefore increasingly susceptible to accepting and brushing off forced labour. Individuals at the bottom of the socio economic ladder find themselves most susceptible to this as they have minimal control over their tomorrow. According to Blackmon (2017) the exposure of our culture to such violations lead to breakdowns within societies which will eventually inhibit the social development of those concerned. This shows that the disadvantages extend beyond just the economic and financial opportunities that are lost but could lead to phenomena’s like injustice and corruption becoming norm.
As a solution to ending forced labour, individual countries have a responsibility to act in solving this crisis. The first way could be by consistently investigating and doing checks on all corporations trading within their boundaries and acting promptly where any instances of forced labour may be seen to be occurring. This can happen through the establishment of commission of enquiries and other independent bodies tasked with ensuring citizen and employee protection. Furthermore by establishing more sustainable economic and social policies, countries could be able to improve the living standards of their people and make them less prone to abuse by employers. Lastly it is important to sensitise employees and aspiring actors in the economy of their rights so that they are in a better position to protect themselves against employers who want to abuse their authority over them.

The human workforce is a crucial part of securing financial, social and political economies and establishing a solid economic standing for any country, it is therefore then an essential part in growing these economies. Beyond this it is also important to understand the correlation between employee rights and human rights and the need to protect them. Several countries experience the same labour issues which is why the pandemic constitutes as a global problem which requires immediate intervention and the need for all stakeholders that have taken up the Global Compact Initiative to act in curbing them. A lot of the principles under Initiative are intertwined and require an almost balanced approach to solving, there are some basic measures that can be used to curb labour issues along with human rights issues and corruption and they include the education ad sensitization of concerned parties, the adoption and implementation of necessary regulation and the upkeep of regular checks and balances to ensure that these problems are solved. However, all stakeholders must always go the extra mile to ensure that for whatever rising issue occurs especially those that are special to their line of work they are always ready and proactively work to resolve them.

Poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) is a copolymer, synthesized of lactic acid and glycolic acid. Lactic acid has two optical isomers: L-lactic acid and D-lactic acid as it contains an asymmetric carbon atom. When the lactide and glycolide moieties get polymerised to form the PLGA co-polymer it forms different conformation and tacticities in it. In the body lactic acid is formed as an intermediate product through the metabolism of carbohydrates. And also the Glycolic acid could be formed as through the metabolic processes of the body. So, when the PLGA copolymer is given in the body, the body metabolizes it slowly to Lactic acid and Glycolic acid. These end products are eliminated from the body via the Krebs cycle. Thus, making the PLGA copolymer to be a biodegradable and biocompatible polymer. The polymer is not harmful to the body. So, this polymer is approved by the U.S. FDA for its clinical use in humans. By altering the copolymer ratio we can also alter the biodegradation rates of the PLGA copolymer. Also, PLGA could be formed as nanoparticles, micro-particles, microspheres, polymeric micelle, scaffold structures which can act as a potential device for loading of hydrophilic drug molecules, charged drug molecules in the core of the PLGA matrix in the above mentioned devices for drug delivery. The PLGA surface properties could be modified for targeting the drug to a specific site of action. Because of all these properties of PLGA this polymer gains interest of the researchers to work on for drug delivery modifications.
The PLGA copolymer is synthesized by means of random ring opening and copolymerization of the monomers, the cyclic dimers of lactic acid and glycolic acid. The copolymerisation is initiated by use of catalysts like tin (II) 2-ethylhexanoate, tin (II) alkoxides and aluminum isopropoxide. Thus, yields a linear polyester amorphous, aliphatic product having ester linkages between the two copolymers.

Synthesis of Higher Molecular Weight or Lower Molecular Weight PLGA:
The degree of condensation and the PLGA copolymer chain length decides the higher molecular weight and lower molecular weight of PLGA copolymer. PLGA of low molecular weight (below 10 kDa) can be obtained by a ring-opening co-polymerization of lactic and glycolic acid. PLGA of higher molecular weights can be synthesized using the same process by using the above mentioned catalysts or using cyclic dimers as a starting material.

The number and types of sequences are limited in the ring-opening polymerizations. Typically, randomly distributed atactic or syndiotactic PLGAs are obtained. Thus, are amorphous in nature. As the atactic/syndiotactic sequences have the random(not on one side of the chain) arrangement of the pendant group, (in the case of PLGA are the carbonyl and methyl groups) across the linear chain thus not causing any ordered arrangement or crystalline form. So, they are amorphous in nature.

Tailored biodegradation rate (depending on the molecular weight and copolymer ratio)
Approval for clinical use in humans by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
Potential to modify surface properties to provide better interaction with biological materials and targeting the site of action.
Suitability for export to countries and cultures where implantation of animal-derived products is unpopular.
The mechanical strength of the PLGA copolymer depends on the crystallinity of the polymer. Also, properties like swelling ability, capacity to undergo hydrolysis and the biodegradation rate depends on the crystallinity of the polymer. While, we consider the individual polymers Poly lactic acid (PLA) and poly glycolic acid (PGA), the PLA is highly crystalline in nature and the PGA is amorphous in nature. So, there is influence of the molar ratios used for the preparation of the PLGA copolymer on the crystallinity. It is thus said that higher the PLA content the PLGA copolymer is more towards crystalline form.
Considering, the rates of biodegradation as the polymer is more towards crystalline form i.e. content or the molar ratio of PLA is more than that of the PGA in the PLGA copolymer, causes it to be less soluble than that of the amorphous form and so the rate of hydrolysis is less in this case and subsequently the rate of biodegradation is low in the case of the PLGA copolymer having PLA content more. So, we can say that by altering the copolymer ratio we are able to modify the biodegradation of the PLGA copolymer.
PLGA copolymer containing a 50:50 ratio of the monomers PLA and PGA is an exception and show higher rate of hydrolysis and biodegradation than those made with either monomer ratio to be higher. It has a glass transition temperature (Tg) of 45°C to 55°C and an inherent viscosity of 0.5-0.8 mPa.

The PLGA co-polymer undergoes degradation hydrolytic degradation or biodegradation through cleavage of its backbone ester linkages. Mechanism for PLGA biodegradation could be explained in three steps:
Random chain scission process: There is scission of the long polymer chains, with no appreciable weight loss and no soluble monomer products formation.

In the middle phase, a decrease in M.W. and soluble oligomeric and monomer products are formed.

Soluble monomer products formed- This phase is that of complete polymer solubilization.

After this the polymer by Krebs cycle is elimanted from the body.
The biodegradation of PLGA could be affected by different factors:
29883103048000Effect of Molar Ratio:
PLA is more hydrophobic in nature than that of the PGA. So, when the ratio of PLA is more in the PLGA polymer, the biodegradation is slower in this case. The exception is only in the case, where the PLA:PGA ratio is 50:50 the degradation rates are faster than where the polymer ratios of either of them are higher.
Effect of Molecular Weight:
Higher molecular weight PLGA polymers are formed where the length of the chains is also longer. So, it takes a larger time for the biodegradation of the PLGA polymer with higher molecular weight.
Effect of Drug loading:
The drug loading plays a significant role in the degradation of the polymer. Larger amount of drug loading results in more content (burst) release at the initial stages of the polymer degradation.
Surface area in contact:
The higher the surface area in contact with aqueous environment (available for hydrolysis), greater is the biodegradation of the PLGA polymer.
The PLGA system is hydrophobic in nature, due to PLA content. To alter the drug release pattern of hydrophilic drugs we need to modify the properties of the PLGA and the surface of the PLGA. Also, to increase the shelf life of the formulations and to avoid any kind of immune response inside the body due to the hydrophobicity of PLGA, we modify the PLGA surface with hydrophilic groups like PEG, Chitosan, Dextran.
34880558953500PEG Modification:
The PEG could be linked with the PLGA polymer chemically. It can thus form the PLGA-PEG block systems i.e. the diblock, triblock and so on and it could be made hydrophilic. The hydrophobicity could be maintained if the PLGA-PEG-PLGA triblock is formed where there are two PLGA molecules associated with a single PEG molecule. When there is need of more hydrophilicity of the formulation the PEG-PLGA-PEG triblock could be used. Also, the ratio when altered may result in formation of different systems (micelle formation) when administered or when are in the formulation for solubility of the drug inside the micelle.
The PLGA-PEG systems also show the solution-gel transitions. Because, while in the formulation they are in aqueous environment and stored at lower temperatures. In this case the hydrogen bonding between the PEG and the water molecules dominate thus dissolving the system in water. When the formulation is administered in-vivo at the body temperature, the PLGA and PEG interactions dominate and thus hydrophobicity increases due to PLGA. The solution state of the formulation then turns gel due to the transformation. So, these systems could also act as depot type of formulation with sufficient hydrophilicity for drug release in the body.

Dextran modified:
For the formation of the interaction and bond between Dextran and PLGA, the modification in Dextran is essential. Dextran is converted to aminated form, which forms an amide linkage with the PLGA and they are linked.
Chitosan modified:
34372555905500The chitosan is a weak cationic type of polymer. When it is surface coated on the PLGA surface it forms interactions with PLGA. Thus, chitosan could be over the surface of the PLGA. So, in the PLGA core hydrophobic in nature, encapsulation of hydrophobic drugs is possible. And in the chitosan layer the hydrophilic and/or charged moieties could be encapsulated. So, a co-drug delivery at a particular target site could be possible with this kind of modification.
End-Groups Modification of PLGA:
32258004169900End capped PLGA with modification of the free carboxylic end of it is achieved by esterification at the carboxylic group and the free hydroxylic end by attaching alkyl chain i.e. ether end capping is performed to modify the drug release patterns. This causes alteration in the drug release patterns of the PLGA as due to end capping it is more hydrophobic in nature due to attachment of alkyl chains. So, prolonged drug release could be achieved due to this modification.

In the literature people have reported different systems of PLGA in different forms for drug delivery like PLGA micro-particles, PLGA microspheres, PLGA micelles, PLGA nanoparticles, PLGA stents, PLGA scaffolds, PLGA solid implants.
PLGA Microspheres:
PLGA microspheres are used for localised drug delivery at specific site of action, thereby reducing side effects and increasing the therapeutic response of the drug administered within this system. According to the molecular weight, the distribution of particle size of PLGA microspheres is from 0.1 to 150µm. So, these are micron size particles. The uptake of PLGA microspheres by the cells thus depends on phagocytosis mechanism as the size is larger. The PLGA is hydrophobic, but due to the carbonyl functional groups on the surface of the PLGA it shows a strong negative zeta potential of almost 70mV. The drug is dispersed within the core of the PLGA microsphere. The release of the drug depends on the degradation of the PLGA microspheres. The degradation could be by surface erosion of the microspheres and by bulk erosion. The chain breaks and microsphere loses its integrity eventually releasing the drug. When the PLGA microspheres are in the body, their uptake is by phagocytosis. These are then produced to the lysozyme pathway for degradation by different enzymes. If the PLGA microspheres are given alone, due to its hydrophobicity it is recognized as foreign by the body and immunological responses like release of cytokines could be observed. When we want the PLGA microspheres to circulate in the blood for longer time, we generally coat them with hydrophilic substances to avoid the body recognize them as foreign due to its hydrophobicity. Generally, PEG modified PLGA are used to improve the shelf life of the formulation and t-half in the body.
The PLGA microspheres mostly in literature are prepared by keeping the copolymer ratio to be 50:50 of the monomers PLA and PGA. So, here the molecular weight plays a significant role in the process of biodegradation of the PLGA copolymer.
PLGA Nanoparticles:
The PLGA nanoparticles are solid Nano sized spherical structures of approximately 200nm. The nanoparticles could be used for targeting action at a specific site. When surface coated with hydrophilic moieties, can circulate in the blood for longer period. They can thus be used for prolonged action for 1 to 6 months based on the copolymer ratio and the molecular weight of the PLGA used, in the body. Hydrophobic drugs, therapeutics could be administered by using the nanoparticle system. The PLGA nanoparticles are basically prepared by Emulsification solvent evaporation techniques. The polymer as is hydrophobic is dissolved in organic liquid and the drug (in case of drug loaded nanoparticles) in aqueous phase. They are mixed together to form a primary emulsion and eventually a secondary emulsion by addition of excess organic phase with agitation to achieve the desired size of the particles, is formed. The solvent is then evaporated from the double emulsion and the precipitation of PLGA nanoparticles is possible. There are different types of PLGA nanoparticles:
Non-targeted Nanoparticles:
The non-targeted PLGA nanoparticles could be a nano-sphere where the drug is dispersed within the core of the PLGA polymer. The nano-capsules are those where the drug is encapsulated within the PLGA polymer. Also, the PEG coated nanoparticles which are only used to increase the hydrophilicity of the PLGA nanoparticles act as the non-target specific moieties.
Targeted Nanoparticles:
These kind of systems are gaining a lot of interest of the researchers. Here, the nanoparticles are either coated/linked with the targeting ligands, antibodies which recognize the target site epitopes (glycoproteins/receptors) as the antigen and bind at these target sites or accumulate near these cells where we want to target the drug release to happen. The target ligands could be the ones which have specifically those ligands which bind to the target receptor which have got expressed on the surface of the target cells. This, kind of treatment works in case of the treatment of cancer. The cancer cells produce or express some particular receptors on its surface which can be targeted. The nanoparticles could be loaded with the cancer therapeutics, i.e. drugs for the treatment or use of biological content the DNA, siRNA, miRNA, and the aptamers which could interfere with the mechanism of growth of the cancer cells leading to apoptosis and cell death.
These are the type of targeted nanoparticles which include the diagnostic agents and the imaging agents, where we can note the drug release and the site at which the drug is released in the body. Also, therapy is simultaneously given at a specific site due to targeting nature of these particles.
The nanoparticles of PLGA could be used in the treatment of cancer as due to the nano-size, at the tumour site there are leaky vasculature present due to no proper formation of blood vessels. From the leaky vasculatures, the nanoparticles escape at reach the tumour site thus targeting the drug release at the site of cancer.
PLGA Micelles:


Marketing has a very wide scope. It deals with launching and making the products or services, which satisfies the needs and wants of people or consumers. A product is launched in market after considering a lot of things because to ensure the achievement of goals or predetermined targets. It is a great idea to launch or introduce a new car in Australia.
Before introducing it, Market information is gathered and analysed. This is a very crucial step. It is done to study the market conditions, needs, priorities, and preferences of the customers. And most prominently to find opportunities and threats present in the market. In Australia, people love to ride and buy cars which are speedy, stylish and comfortable and should have more exciting features in it.
So, introducing new car with special features looks like a great opportunities but business environment not only deals with privileges and opportunities, it also take or have risks and threats associated with the product , this is how business runs. There is one threat related to launching the car whether it will achieve the targeted sale or not because after studying the market we have come to know another company is also launching a new car with special features , now it depends on the people and market what they will prefer . Even after this risk, the car would be surely launched because this car would have better and more special features to increase its sale.
So, after analysing the market, a proper plan is made from production of the car to the end. Planning is the management activity which builds the path between idea or goal and its achievement. It reduces the chance of mistake and guarantee success.
The next step is to design and develop a car. The car is usually popular because of its unique design and shape. So, Car is further proceeded towards assembly line where it would be finally made and assembled.
In the assembling line the parts of the car would be made or arranged according to the designed car. Special engineers and technicians are engaged for the manufacturing of a car. The car have special features , it have super music system, it is not manual ,it is automatic ,amazingly its two have only two seats and, its shape is attractive (long) which looks trendy and suits the status and standard of people. It would be available in special and royal three colours i.e., Black, White, and Red.
Permission and licencing is required for the production and launching of product.
Manufacturing of car comes under various rules and regulations like it should be safe, no harmful objects would we used during production and after its manufacturing it is tested, then the patents and trade mark is given which will protect the car from copying.
Then branding of a product is done which means to give a special name and symbol which will be its identification mark. A unique name will increase the reputation and generates repeat sales of the car.A brand name is given to a car which is LAMBOZIN and have this attractive sign * , which will provide the following benefits: a) It helps in product differentiation from others car
b) Ease in introduction of the car as it will act also as promotional tool.
c) It ensures quality of the car.
d) Boost it the sale of Lambozin
e) Ensures its continuity
Because the name is quite suggestive, easy to pronounce, unique and stylish and will become popular. It will definitely stay in power like other luxurious cars
The company would provide release order, permanent bill, and 5 years warranty and 3 times free service and provide many after sales services.
Now the most vital step is taken on which the demand of the car (Lambozin) depends, the price determination .price is the amount of money which a consumer pay to buy or obtain a product. Price is a very powerful weapon to control the demand and other factors and goals of the company. In fact, price is the income and profits of a company which is generated after selling of car.
Price of the car would be determined using various factors. The factors which would be considered are discussed below:
a) Cost: cost is the total expense which is incurred on the production of the car. So, to survive in the long run , the price would be set which will cover the whole cost and will result in reasonable profit to the business
b) Demand: Demand of a car is usually high in the market because people wants to increase the standard of living, so, price can be set higher or moderate.
c) Competitors: Now we will search for the competitors in the market and the competitors are Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Lamborghini etc. According to their rates, the price will be set.
So, price will be determined $ 80,000.
Now the car is ready, the next step is to make it easily available to the consumers.
It is a crucial step as if the car is not available at a right place and at the right time, the consumer won’t buy it. So, we will make it available by following ways:
a) opening new big showrooms at many big cities
b) open a website through which consumers can online view its profile
c) making it available on online websites

This type of short term incentives supplements the promotional activities.

Drug dependancy, additionally known as substance use ailment, is a ailment that affects a person’s mind and conduct and results in an lack of ability to control using a criminal or unlawful drug or medicinal drug. Substances including alcohol, marijuana and nicotine are also considered tablets. When you are addicted, you may retain the usage of the drug no matter the damage it causes.
Drug addiction can begin with experimental use of a recreational drug in social situations, and, for a few human beings, the drug use turns into extra common. For others, particularly with opioids, drug dependancy starts off evolved with publicity to prescribed medications, or receiving medications from a friend or relative who has been prescribed the drugs.
The danger of dependancy and how rapid you end up addicted varies by using drug. Some capsules, such as opioid painkillers, have a higher danger and cause dependancy greater fast than others.

. High NA, low EC, and both high and coffee PA have been every determined to play a position in conferring threat and retaining substance use behaviours, despite the fact that the strength of their affect differed depending on degree of contamination (i.E., early onset use via to addiction). Given these findings, we argue that future research need to explicitly consider how changes within affective structures can also underlie the improvement of SUDs. A higher information of the position of affective dysregulation in dependancy will aid in clarifying how threat is conferred, in addition to how addictive behaviours are maintained, thereby informing the development of preventative techniques and novel remedies.

In sum, modern-day Australian damage discount drug training and social advertising and marketing can be producing rather than reducing drug related damage.
We acquire that controlling mental addiction is higher than tablets remedy.

Discussion and conclusion
As it is clear from the study that effect of drug addiction on behavior of adolescence and youth has turned out to be negative which is by the development of the following :
Substance use disorders can lead to multiple behavioral problems, both in the short- and long-term, which can include:

The most importantly is the loss of life,for example last year in America a record of 72,000 deaths were caused due to drug overdose which was more that the deaths caused by cancer out of which 50% of the users were youth.
Youth who are the faces of tomorrow are dieing due to reasons and which must be stopped ,if this continues then the average life of youth will be very short and mental and health problems will be at its peak ,so there is still time when we can improve the conditions.

These type of addictions are destroying the mental and physical capabilities of an individual so the prevention which can be followed are:
The best way to prevent an addiction to a drug is not to take the drug at all. If your doctor prescribes a drug with the potential for addiction, use care when taking the drug and follow the instructions provided by your doctor.
Doctors should prescribe these medications at safe doses and amounts and monitor their use so that you're not given too great a dose or for too long a time. If you feel you need to take more than the prescribed dose of a medication, talk to your doctor.
Preventing drug misuse in children and teenagers
Take these steps to help prevent drug misuse in your children and teenagers:
• Communicate. Talk to your children about the risks of drug use and misuse.
• Listen. Be a good listener when your children talk about peer pressure, and be supportive of their efforts to resist it.
• Set a good example. Don't misuse alcohol or addictive drugs. Children of parents who misuse drugs are at greater risk of drug addiction.
• Strengthen the bond. Work on your relationship with your children. A strong, stable bond between you and your child will reduce your child's risk of using or misusing drugs.
Preventing a relapse
Once you've been addicted to a drug, you're at high risk of falling back into a pattern of addiction. If you do start using the drug, it's likely you'll lose control over its use again — even if you've had treatment and you haven't used the drug for some time.
• Stick with your treatment plan. Monitor your cravings. It may seem like you've recovered and you don't need to keep taking steps to stay drug-free. But your chances of staying drug-free will be much higher if you continue seeing your therapist or counselor, going to support group meetings and taking prescribed medication.
• Avoid high-risk situations. Don't go back to the neighborhood where you used to get your drugs. And stay away from your old drug crowd.
• Get help immediately if you use the drug again. If you start using the drug again, talk to your doctor, your mental health professional or someone else who can help you right away.

Drug dependancy is a effective demon that can sneak up on you and take over your life before you comprehend it has even occurred. What started out as just a leisure life-style has triumph over your life and affected each single element of it.
