Those who are familiar with my background know that I have always been strict on my children and what it means to follow the rules. We have developed this level of trust with one another and our relationship so far has been very open and honest. I was extremely proud of this latest article by my 13-year-old daughter.

Drug Free by Ivy Groves
“You don’t need heroin to be a hero” “The Fresh Quotes”
Drugs do not influence me
I don’t need drugs to have fun
I just want to run
I also want to stay drug free
I don’t want to make a mistake
Because in the morning I want to wake
You heard the fights and felt the pain from the drugs in your brain
You may act crazy but you aren’t lazy
So get up and live life
Because tomorrow’s not promised
Drugs aren’t cool so don’t be a fool
Please be smart and don’t decide to fall apart
So stay drug free…!
