Yep she is 10..but guess what , I am her mother! Respect my wishes!!
Me and my DD went to my aunt's place for a celebration for Queen Victoria weekend, my uncle had his DJ'ing equipment out in the lawn..and we were all having a blast.
And all of a sudden , i hear a song BLARING ..about smoking marijuana...taking the tweezers to smoke it ..smoking it with a bong...
My aunt and uncle do NOT smoke pot, so i found it kind of weird that they even had the song to begin with (but..he is a DJ part time..so..)
We had my DD ( 10) , my cousin ( 9 ) and another non family member child (7)..there.
So i asked my uncle if he could please change the song. And omg i got so much grieve from everyone!! " It's just a song ....she doesn't know what it means.."
uhm..yes she is 10..she does go to school..she isn't oblivious to it!
Now i will say that my ex SO of 8 yrs , smokes pot..and i don't care about it , however he has never talked about it /prepped it or smoked it around our DD.
We both very much believe that children really shouldn't be around that stuff when they are with family ..we are supposed to be their role models after all.
Let me just add though..whenever DD has questions about drugs , we absolutely answer her questions..
My vent is that , they are FAMILY members .. i may be a stuck up snob here but it took me a good 10 minute's to calm myself down ..because i was not impressed that the ONE thing that i asked of them , concerning my parenting..got disrespected.
Whether it is a song or not ..IMO MY child does not need to hear that crap..especially at a family function.
(and yes ..the kid's had been dancing around to the music..so she WAS listening to the song )
