Another Partnership Posting

For those that are interested The Partnership For A Drug Free America has posted another article I have written.

http://intervene.drugfree.org/2010/01/help-your-child-by-overcoming-your-shame/

This one is about overcoming your own personal shame as a parent so that you are better prepared to deal with the issue of addiction.

You ARE amazing!! I am sharing this with my husband. I wish you two could meet. He is having such a hard time right now but doesn't know how to reach out. Thanks for making yourself available Ron. I hope you never stop! Your story, your wisdom, is so needed. .

In gratitude...

Uh Oh. I just worte about this organization today and it wasn't negative, but it wasn't exactly positive...

I totally agree with your article and in many ways it goes along with the point I was trying to make on my blog.

Good work, Ron!

Great article Ron! I think you will help a lot of parents who read it. One thing I have since figured out - that by trying to "keep my secret" I only hurt myself and Heather. I shielded her from the "consequences" she needed to grow as an individual, and the disease progressed. I am no longer hiding it, I love my daughter and will no longer conform to other people's standards/thoughts which is what I was dong by keeping it a secret... and "saving face" as a parent. Pride. You know what they say about all things kept in the dark will be brought to light. Wish I had started out there.
I hope you help many parents through that article to see that early on. Great article! & Best wishes!

Thanks for sharing this. I am grateful to not have children but will pass this along to those who do have and that are addicted.
