Hard truths

  1. 1. Hard Truths Steps On The Road To (Their) Recovery Victoria Kamm Wildly Passionate Parent Advocate
  2. 2. My Child Is Not Against Me We take everything personally. The fact is our kids are simply for themselves.
  3. 3. Control Success The more control I seek the less successful I will be. It only causes my kid to be less controlled.
  4. 4. I Am Not A Victim So many of us have been victimized by our children. Shame on them. Being a victim is something we do to ourselves. Shame on us.
  5. 5. My Dreams Aren’t My Child’s Dreams Even when they sound alike. The last thing your kids need to hear is they aren’t fulfilling your dreams.
  6. 6. Nothing Is A Guarantee When you’re looking for a silver bullet anything will do: Treatment, therapy, a specialized court program, tough love. It leaves out the buy-in from your kids.
  7. 7. That’s How I Was Raised Raise your kids like you were raised? Ain’t nobody got time for that! Our kids are raised in a vastly different world. You may not like it but you will have to deal with it.
  8. 8. Feeling Defensive? If any of these hard truths make you feel defensive pay close attention. They are the ones you most need to work on.
