My son and I open about mental health and addiction
We've worked with SO many parents who are watching their child struggle with mental health and addiction. We've listened as their kids say that they hate them, that they are better of without parents, and even that they wanted to kill themselves and no one would care. They believe they are victims, wronged by their parents, while it's killing their parents to watch as their children learn the hard way. Love looks ugly sometimes as a parent. But love is the only way.
This video, though only one story from one family, is the hope that I carry with these families as they make their way through the roughest years.
