What do it mean to be a felon? Or to be know as a Mother of a felon.
What do it mean to be a felon? Or to be know as a Mother of a felon. The American Heritage Dictionary states: felon n. 1. law. A person who has committed a felony Now what is a felony? felony n. 1. any of several crimes, such as murder, rape, or burglary, considered more serious than a misdemeanor and publishable by a more stringent sentence. We have children that wear this name like a badge of honor. I hear them, when they ask, if they could get a job doing something that, looks like it would great/fun. They shout it out "I am a felon". And, the other person, did not even asks or expect that to come from that person. What do this sticker or name do to a person deem wicked? How do a mother conduct herself in making the adjustment to this new life, with police, court dates, etc.? What do it mean?

This Mother's Day 2016
This Mother's Day 2016 I am starting a new way of thinking about my life for I am going to embrace a NEW MOtto to strive for.
After all my life was hit with a shock, that was very upsetting for me. Then add the shame as an extra ingredient to what I was feeling because of what my son had done.
Plus, this is the blog for the mothers, lovers and caregivers of felons to discuss how to better deal with this condition and not allow it to sicken us with worry and grief. There is research that stress can kill.
This is why I am choosing to not allow conditions to stop me from receiving all the greatness and goodness in life. Mother's Day for me is like Spring, I am renewing myself. How are you going to renew yourself? Staying in the same mindset of feeling bad, sorry or shameful will improve if you move forward and change your thought process about the situation that you now find yourself in.
With that statement, I would like to say HaPPY Mother's day.…
Is it your struggle or not?
As mothers lovers and caregivers we do ever. Do we wonder why this has happened to our child/ren or love ones?
Our children/love ones can be faced with charges. whether true are false you should search and find out just your child/love one is being charged with.
More than 90% of cases do get plea bargained. And only 10% goes to trail. (That is, however, is a past blog article .)
