Don't Point Your Fingers - By Mum Of Prisoner


Hi, to the lady who wrote the post about being a bad parent because her son went to prison.
I have 2 sons, one is a doctor and the other is in prison. Because my son is in prison does not make me a bad parent but I know how the lady feels because the public have their opinions about prison which is mostly a judgemental one anyway. My son went off the rails for whatever reason and one of the main reasons was he tagged along with pals who smoked weed then went on to harder drugs.   He was 19 at the time and was always taught the rights and wrongs by me and his father. At 19 he has his own mind and that does not make me a bad parent because of his foolish choices. If people want to judge me because my son is in prison... then let them!
