Posting about parents.

Posting about local parents is a bad idea. Even when you KNOW you are right, it can hurt the children. I'm not sorry for what I said, but I did delete one. 

My goals of writing this blog is to be as honest about my  life in recovery, and as a mom, as I can.  Nothing is off-limits. This helps me. This might help others. It isn't always pretty.  And sometimes that involves other people. And sometimes that means people get hurt because of how I see life. 

I apologize for that. I will let this one slide. But I won't change the way I write and how real I want to be. So some people WILL get hurt. That is life. And this is my real life. 

We all do things different folks. And we all love our kids.

  1. It came up on my feed and I read it. Ok, I see the points you were making but let me remind you of all the stupid things we did in high school, probably all of them started with a beer in our hands, right?

    1. Of course. And we lived. Some of us tool longer to get living. I wasn't really worried about my daughter. I was more having it out with the other parents. But we will work it out.

  2. Hi I have been following your blog for sometime now. However I am not sure hurting the children is the right thing. I can appreciate your want or need to be honest but hurting children is never the answer.

    1. Hi Jillian. That's why I took the post down.

    2. I agree about hurting the children. I am glad you saw that it might affect them. I unfortunately did not see what the post was before it was removed but I really think you should reconsider having the post about parenting up as well. I have enjoyed reading your blog the times I have come across it but my feelings are that your recent posts may be going to far into shaming other families. This is just my opinion though.

    3. I deleted one. But the one before this one is staying. I'm not trying to shame them, just proving how my approach is different. I've had an emotional few weeks and have gone back and forth about if it's my "revenge" fueling this last one. I've decided no. I need to stand firm about what I'm doing as a parent and not let others put me down or try to parent my own kids in a way that I disagree. That's my point.

      Thanks for your comment. I do agree with not shaming people. But that is also where we differ as parents.

    4. Plus, I fixed it to make it less shaming. Took out the video. But we parent different. And it got ugly. For the best, I believe.
