My sons dad and I are both in recovery from drugs and alcohol. We go to NA (12 step) meetings once a week. The meeting we go to allows kids , so our 2 yr old comes with us. For those of you who dont know about NA and AA at the beginning every one goes around and introduces them sleves like this: "hi my name is ___ and I am an Alchoclic/Addict. Well we doing introductions and after my sons dad and i introduced oursleves my 2 yr old pipes up with "Im Junur (how hes says his name) im alcolic" THe whole room was rolling laughing for about 5 minutes!! No this is not bad thing.. He was used to oging to meetings with us.. it was sooooo cute! then when we went to say the serenity prayer, my 2 yr ols had the whole thing (expcet a few words) memorized and was able to say it with the group.. resultaing in abunch of aww's...

well i thing this is so cool.. my son at only 2 is participating in our recovery.. as he gets older we will soeak t him more in detial about it.. my hopes are that he never really has to experiecne addiction and will learn from our mistakes...

well i just thought was really cute and wanted to share!

Congrats to you! And how great that you can take your kid(s) with you to your meeting.s. My DH goes to AA and they have a bon fire meeting on the beach every Sat. Night, we make it a whole family night. it's great! Everyone brings their little ones and I think it's a wonderful thing for the kids to be part of.

 I to attend the kid friendly meetings when I can not find a sitter for the munchkins.

Otherwise I go to a different meeting, that is not kid friendly. I think what your son did is great, and pray he never has to deal with the things we deal with! Bless you and many congrats on your recovery!
