Parents Carrying Son On Shoulders As They Walk In Park

It's Always a Tough Conversation, but Here's Why and How I Talk to My Kids About My Addiction

May 22, 2019

This candid article is written by an author who once struggled with addiction to alcohol for a significant time during her parenting years. When she got sober, her children asked her, "why would you keep drinking when you know it makes you sick?" She wanted to give her daughter all of the right answers to the reasons why she spent so many days and nights drinking alcohol to excess and from her daughters perspective, had "100% control over her own alcohol consumption."  The author states it was a tough conversation to have, but she made it a point through her addiction to open up to her three children.
