Look at your child now;innocent and yet viewing all that surrounds him......
Now imagine that same child a few years down the road, following in your footsteps;figuring,if mom could do it,so can I.
It goes way beyond the "do what I say not as I do" phrase.Children can and will remember certain activities when they mature and either they'll learn from them or give into them.
Imagine your child swept into the foster care system;going from one family to another;tossed around like a baseball,until he decides to run away.
Imagine long-term jail time for being under the influence and committing a heinous crime,where the judge wants to make an example of you to show that either he/she is tough on crime,in a political year.
These are a few of the realistic possibilities that can happen.
Reality is an uncaring entity;sweeping your plight and/or feelings under the rug and then stomping on them.
You deserve better;your child deserves better.........
stop and think seriously about it.
