Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

You are a bad parent if you let your son/daughter smoke weed (or any recreational drug) or underage drink. Step up, quit being lazy and parent your damn children and don't give me that excuse, "Well, they are going to do it, why not just let them do it safely?" NO. Not at all kids are going to do it. I didn't when i was a teenager and I didn't because my mom was on my case about it. She wasn't lazy, she stepped up and disciplined me. 

Bash me all you want, but I will never let my kids smoke weed/ drink in my house. I take parenting seriously. And I am a new mom. Pregnant with my first (boy) in August! But, I love him and I won't allow him to do any harm to himself. Alcohol is illegal in my state and even if it wasn't, I find nothing good about alcohol. Me being a new mom has nothing to do with the way I have planned to parent...

I love how half the people comment aboout how they let thier kids have sips. Quit being so sensitive. I'm not saying you can't give them a sip. Jesus christ.. use your brains. I'm talking about the parents who let their kids get wasted or stoned.

Where do you live where it's legal to buy alcohol for your underage child? I live in AZ and it doesnt matter if you are the parent or random person. It's a misdemeanor


Quoting laura_sims:

I can get arrested for what? 

If it was legal for them to smoke and they want to then how can i get arrested for it?

It is 100% legal for me to buy and supply alcohol to my own children how could i get arrested for it?

Oh dear god.....

Get pregnant for the first time and suddenly knows all about being a parent.....what a joke..

My daughter is 19...I had the talks. I had the tight control over who she hung out with. Hell...I even had the curfews...all that "good parenting" still didn't stop my child from smoking weed, cigs, and having a beer or two.
