    I have never been high, so I am not sure what that is like. I can understand that it is difficult to take care of your children while in a lot of pain. DH just gave his kidney to his brother this summer. After the surgery he was in A LOT of pain. I can not see him being able to care for our children in that much pain, but neither can I see him caring for our children full of the pain medicine he was on. I feel for people who have no one to help them with their kids after a major surgery.

    I think his children will know what is going on. My 12 year old knows so much about what is going on around her, she picks up on everything.

    I think there is so much more to parenting then playing legos and having tea, and I think that is what my kids would miss out on if I was high. Sure, I would be a really fun Mommy, but not necessarily a good parent.

    I also don't think he's suggesting being high all the time.

    That is true. I have a friend whose kid caught him smoking pot when he (the kid) was about 13 or 14. He was so mad at his dad! It ended up with a really good, worthwhile discussion, but it was a shock to the kid that his dad was smoking pot when all he heard about at school was how terrible all drugs are.

    I am not a big fan of this. I'm not anti pot smoking at all but I don't like the sentiment behind his article. Yes, playing the same game over and over and watching Annie over and over (what I'm enduring currently at my house) would probably be more rad with some pot I don't want my kids to feel I needed to self medicate myself to be with them. I don't hate doing those things over and over again because I love my kids and it's not longer about MY enjoyment it's about THEIRS. He needs to grow up.

    He's taking it for PAIN, though. He's in chronic pain.

    The man had 'occasional back pain' with stress and anxiety. Ok, the occasional back pain imo doesn't have to be treated with POT? How about some healing yoga and exercise? How about some life modifications? Where is mom in all of this? Is he high with the mom home or not home? I'm unclear about a few things. His story is TOTAL crud, a total cop out. My kids would hurt themselves or each other if I was high. And there is no where in my house to hide those brownies. They know where everything is. And, also, if he thinks his kids won't notice...he better think again because kids are not ignorant. They'll be taking those brownies to school for sharing.

    1. Occasional pain...for which the pot did not help..but he's cool with it (not helping and still feeling pain).
    2. No time for Yoga? How about putting the ipad down and do some yoga with your kid? A zillion articles are published every year to show moms how they have time to workout, and one idea is to do it with the kiddos. There is always time, but this guy wasn't interested as he drank his alcohol and ignored his kid while glued to the ipad.

    As an aside, I am thinking of hiding the Annie movie in my house. My oldest has all the songs memorized and sings them ALL the time.
