I made this video a week ago, and last night I went to an event called,
Down & Dirty - The answers to YOUR questions about drugs in OUR community.
It was excellent and the presenters shared valuable information and touching stories of challenge and recovery. Thanks so much to all that helped to put on the event. I also truly appreciate how many of our community members came and participated.
Seems as though there is a lot of concern about what we should be doing with and for our children to help them navigate the teen world that unfortunately, is laden with drugs and alcohol. We certainly have a right to be concerned… there are plenty of kids already involved in that kind of behavior.
I stood up (in front of a whole lot of people), and talked about my experience working in a rehab in Malibu, I shared about the tools that I use when working with my clients, and also told about one of my own situations… briefly.
It was worth it to be brave, a few moms came up to me afterward and were very grateful for the information that I shared. I will be facilitating a new Parenting Workshop soon so that I can share the tools and help to eliminate the worry that so many parents experience.
The main thing I would like to get across is that there are solutions.
Concrete, “do this”, kind of actions that we can take, that will absolutely make a difference in the relations between parents and children. Answers for working through the day to day problems as they come up.
Feel free to contact me for more information.
