I saw a movie where Tyler Perry had a drug addict as his wife and the mother of his kids. The lady refused to seek for help as her drug and alcohol addiction got worse and deteriorated her life. Tyler decided to do away with her and allowed her minimal access to the kids. I saw this as rather unfair and mean to both the mum and the kids, I forgot there is something called “influence” which parents have on kid. That was a movie I saw, but, I read about the real life drama of late Whitney Houston and I understood Tyler’s moves and intentions.

Whitney Houston was survived by an 18year old daughter, Bobbi Kristina Brown, who is apparently following her mother’s troubled footsteps as she was photographed snorting a white powder said to be cocaine. A shock report claims that the late Whitney Houston and her teenage daughter Bobbi Kristina shared the same drug dealer. An insider alleges that Whitney's 18-year-old daughter was also being given drugs and alcohol by that man, unknown to her mother.
Bobbi Kristina ‘Krissi’ Brown, 18, is well aware of the dangers of drugs. Her mother’s career was blighted by addiction and her father, singer Bobby Brown, has also needed rehab treatment.
‘I’ve tried to stop her,’ he said. ‘But all she said was, “I’m just like my mother!”
. ‘Whitney needs to see what her daughter is doing to herself. If Krissi doesn’t stop soon, this addiction to cocaine will kill her.’ An article in National Enquirer magazine claimed she regularly indulges in marijuana and ‘guzzles beer and gets smashed on potent grain alcohol’. A shock new report claims that the late Whitney Houston and her teenage daughter Bobbi Kristina shared the same drug dealer.

It is actually easier to see the spec in other peoples’ eyes, even when we have a log in ours. With Whitney being a superstar, her life is easy to watch and criticize, but can we as parents check our lives and see the damages our children have picked for us. A child’s first contact and role models are usually the parents. As a kid, I remember watching my dad pick his nose with his index finger, I thought it was stylish (I was a kid), so I copied him until out of the blues, I was called a dirty girl!!!! WHAT?!
Children ignorantly and subconsciously copy their parents in speech, attitude, behavior and character; some are even religious about this copying as to them, no one can be smarter than their parents. What they see you do, they will proudly display to everyone around.
Ask yourself, if my daughter behaves like me, would I be proud of her, if my son does somethings I do, would I be happy? Krissis is said to have been on drugs for four years and her mother’s pleas and cry were not able to convince her to go to the rehab. Think about yourself and the legacy you would leave your kids with, would it build or destroy their future?
The ball is in your court, your children are your joy, but you could make them otherwise if you are not careful.
