abet /əˈbet/

The boy, at sixteen, is almost certainly more clever, wise and curious than his parents and struggles to find respect for them. He trusts in a mentor; approaches him with his deepest thoughts. The relationship is profoundly honest; transcends the normal modes of human interaction. There is no posturing; no calculation.

He is driven to sample hallucinogens and will do so no matter the mentor's support or protest. What is there to do then, but support the exploration by providing safe harbour?
