Parental Drug Addiction, Death of a Parent, Parents with Mental Illness, Children with Special Needs

Our children’s life stories unfold before our eyes. The impact of a parent's substance addiction, alcoholism, mental illness, eating disorder, gambling addiction, or other loss of control and loss of safety and unpredictability, can impact children in far reaching and enduring ways. We never wanted our children to have to deal with adult issues prematurely, but it happens, and we parents need to respond in our children’s best interest. Partner Lisa Cukier will discuss the tenuous balance in preserving the family structure versus taking steps to promote safety by eliminating an unsafe situation.
