This mom explains how drinking wine almost ruined her life. You have got to hear this story!
Some moms believe that every mom needs a sippy cup. And they don't mean the type you have prepared for the kiddos. They mean a glass to sip on some wine. It has been a popular joke in our society that moms need a glass of wine after dealing with their children all day. This culture has been glorified and has been the center of fellowship for these moms.
A woman named Laura McKowen believes that this perspective endorses alcoholism in families. She knows this first hand because that was her story. She was once one of those moms who indulged in wine on a regular basis and when she was socializing with other moms.
Laura lost control over her indulgence and even almost lost her daughter to alcohol. That’s when she realized that a change needed to be made so she made the decision to be sober. And now she wants to encourage others to do the same thing and turn away from associating motherhood with needing a glass of wine.
Laura strongly disagrees with this phenomenon. She feels that it entertains the idea that being a mom is a negative thing. And it should not be normal for a parent to feel that they need a glass of wine do what they are actually privileged to do. Her view on parenting is that it is a gift.
Parenting is not a burden that requires a mom to need intoxication. So, her goal is to help eliminate the "drinking moms" phenomenon because it is so dangerous. What do you think?
