Fulks is a teacher and youth ministry leader, and a recent session with teenagers recovering from addictions pushed him to share this "X-plan" with other parents. On his blog, he detailed how the plan works, and why it is so important.

"Recently I asked these kids a simple question:  How many of you have found yourself in situations where things started happening that you weren’t comfortable with, but you stuck around, mainly because you felt like you didn’t have a way out?'"

"They all raised their hands. Every single one of them."

Fulks wanted to emphasize how important having  a "way out" can be to a child of this impressionable age.

But his technique wasn't received without controversy. Some parents commented that this method might encourage dishonesty or encouraging avoidance. Fulks cautioned that tips and tricks shouldn't replace honest conversations and important talks with your children.

"It actually presents an opportunity for you as a parent to teach your kids that they can be honest (something DID come up, and they DO have to leave), while learning that it’s okay to be guarded in what they reveal to others. They don’t owe anyone an explanation the next day, and if asked can give the honest answer, “It’s private and I don’t want to talk about it.” Boom! Another chance for a social skill life-lesson from Mom and Dad."

After spending time with the recovering teenagers---who were in the program for 6 months, Fulks felt his message was more important than ever.

"You never know when something so simple could be the difference between your kid laughing with you at the dinner table or spending six months in a recovery center … or (God forbid) something far worse."

Adidas Sold 1 Million Shoes Made From Recycled Ocean Plastic

Sustainable fashion is slowly but surely becoming more mainstream. What was once associated with “hippy fashion” has now flourished into an entire industry filled with cute and fashionable wares. Though the movement started with lesser known brands, better-known named are starting to get on the sustainable bandwagon and realizing they are good for sales as well as the planet. Big names like Stella McCartney, H&M, and Michael Kors have all recently made pledges to make more ethical fashion. And the newest fashion giant to join them is everyone’s favorite name in shoes, Adidas.

Adidas sold 1 million of these shoes made out of ocean plastic, according to a CNBC interview with the company’s CEO. Last year Adidas teamed up with Parley for the Oceans, a group that raises awareness about the issues facing out oceans and how we can make a difference.

The collaboration gave us three new versions of the UltraBoost shoe, all of which are made from ocean plastic. Each pair of shoes is made out of 11 plastic bottles.

Adidas saw shares drop 15% over the past 6 months and its 4th quarter sales were lower than expected. But the company says it expects 2018 to be another year of sale and profit growth.
