Acceptance of Addiction
This book helped me as the parent of a son with addiction. None of the chapters specifically address addiction, but the challenges we face are equivalent to those described. The book helped me get to a place of acceptance and appreciation for the joy and growth my son has brought to my life. It helped me put addiction into a proper context of parenting a challenging son who has defied all my expectations of how my life would evolve. This book helped me see that my son's addiction has created the catalyst for me to let go of judgement, expectations, the need to control, and believing that I know what is best for another human being. It has helped me focus on acceptance, love, advocacy, and hope. Thank you Andrew Solomon!
