Because playing make-believe with kids is more fun when you’re high?
I take great pride in being a mother who is 100 percent sober all the time. While there’s no doubt that I had a whole lot of fun in my early twenties (that resulted in many nights I can’t even remember), I quit everything cold turkey the moment I became a mom. That means I haven’t smoked a cigarette, gotten black-out drunk or tried anything that would alter my state of mind from the moment I found out I was pregnant with my first child.
Yet, for some moms though, they like to keep the party going. And while there’s no problem enjoying a girl’s night out with your friends or having a few glasses of wine the moment the kids go to bed, I do question parents who like to be under the influence of either alcohol or certain substances when their kids are around.
That’s why I was pretty surprised to read an article by Jezebel blogger Kathryn Jezer-Morton in which she says it’s a whole lot more fun to be around your kids…. when you’re slightly high on weed.
No, I couldn’t make this stuff up even if I tried!
Should a mom ever be under the influence of marijuana around her kids?
