Mom grounds son for smoking pot tells girlfriend she’s no longer welcome
I spoke to a woman today who told me she had grounded her 15 year old son for one month for smoking pot. She also, took away his phone and play station. Then she told his 15 year old girl friend she was no longer welcome in their home because the girl was an active pot user.
The boy had been hanging out with some friends who were drug users and started smoking pot with them. During school the boy plays football and baseball, but during spring break started hanging with his friends and somewhere along the way Mariguanna had showed up in his life. “He’s a good kid” she said but I wanted to nip this in the bud right away. When he’s playing sports he’s fine. He doesn’t have time to hang out with druggy kids. Between sports and school he’s busy. But I just don’t want to see it started” she said. “When his girlfriend came over I drug tested her” She showed up positive for marijuana and I told her she had to leave, was no longer welcome in our home and that I didn’t want my son going out with her any more”
You mean you drug tested her right there.? “Yep. I made her pee in a cup and tested her right in the bathroom. She knew I meant business. All of his friends now call me the “drug testing mom”, but they know I care. But I really don’t want my 15 year old boy going down that path.”
Did her son rebel? “No he knows I love him. We don’t have a power struggle over this. He knows.
Wow. That mom deserves mother of the year award. What do you think? Pretty courageous huh? I wonder if more parents used this approach , if it would cut down on teenage drug use? WHAT DO YOU THINK?
