A recent publication from the Center for Substance Abuse Research reports that there are four characteristics of "problem parents". "Problem parents" are defined as those who fail to
1. monitor their children's school night activities;
2. safeguard prescription drugs at home;
3. address the problem of drugs in schools;
4. set a good example.
