Verse Which Describes This PSST Mom's Behavior by Violet
Posted by:Sally--Tuesday, December 06, 2011

Below is a quote from a song by the Police...

...I thought it demonstrates my behavior through my son’s addiction.

[ and being from the Police...how appropriate ]

Every single day...
Every word you say...
Every game you play...
Every night you stay…

~ Violet

Music, poems, quotes....are excellent ways to express how we feel while we are parenting addictive sons and daughters.

Good quote, Violet.
I can also truly relate to Rocco's quotes above.

Jenn said...

And some of the other stanzas are just as appropriate! Like this one . . .

Every move you make
Every vow you break
Every smile you fake
Every claim you stake
I'll be watching you

And from what you've been saying all along at PSST meetings, you have done exactly those things . . . with encouraging results! You should feel very good about what you have accomplished - it's nothing less than a miracle.

These words are so true! I live them every day and wonder if I ever will not have to be watching every day.

I agree with Sally that lyrics, poems and quotes often describe perfectly how we feel in parenting our kids.
