Recognizing that the solution will require something different or unfamiliar
How can it be that the right kind of help means that I have to send my child to a school or treatment program? Coming to terms with the reality that help will not always come in the way we envision it, or it requires the additional emotional cost of having your son or daughter live away from home for awhile, is an understandably difficult process for parents. I always recommend that parents talk to other parents who are either on or have been through this journey. No one REALLY understands it like another mom or dad. The good news is however is that you are not alone, there are options and there are quality programs who can provide a caring, nurturing and safe environment where healing can begin – both for your child and for you as parents.
