Since Ashley passed I have read articles, blogs and posts about teen addiction. I have questioned my own ability to parent. I have questioned every decision we made on Ashley's behalf. I have looked at my 3 little kids and wonder if there is something that I can do now to prevent them from following a troubled road. Reading articles like this one help me realize that people are people and are going to do what they are going to do. All we can do is love them and be there to pick them up when they fall. I realize God has a plan for us all.
Parenting Teens That Struggle
I have learned over the years to not judge. You don't know what people are going through. You don't know what struggles lie within the walls of their homes. Be an encourager and uplift people.
