Marijuana is identified as a remedy for anxiety relief but for parenting? One mother insists that cannabis improves her parenting ability.

The realization came to Lea Grover while in the comfort of her home as she was tending to her crying 2-year-old twins, she documented in a new essay for Cosmopolitan. Mrs. Grover had not used marijuana for quite some time, however, she made the choice to take a quick couple tokes from her “stash box.”

“When I went back to change my daughters’ diapers, something was different. I was different,” she documents stating that being stoned provided her to the ability to relate better with her children.
“When my daughter whined I understood implicitly she was uncomfortable in her diaper. I stripped her of her clothes, and she started smiling at once.” After the incident, she realized she was “actually sort of a better parent stoned.”

Lea Grover goes on to document that she does not rely on marijuana, however, she looks to use it for the patience it temporarily provides her. “I’m slower to get angry or frustrated because I understand their frustrations,” she says, of being high. “I am able to see the world through their eyes, to remember how hard it is to be a preschooler or toddler, how things that seem obvious to me aren’t yet known to them. We all have a better day.”

“When I went back to change my daughters’ diapers, something was different. I was different,” she writes, saying that being high allowed her to empathize better with her daughters. “When my daughter whined I understood implicitly she was uncomfortable in her diaper. I stripped her of her clothes, and she started smiling at once.”

After the incident, she felt she was “actually sort of a better parent stoned.”
