    If your child discloses while young...

    ...please begin learning all you can about drug abuse prevention. When your child is 23 at time of disclosure, having shortly before that disclosed that she has become addicted to opioids, almost overnight you realize you live in a war zone. You're standing in a single battlefield, but fighting two potentially unwinnable wars.My daughter took her first drink at age 8, during the year she was...

    Okay guys... I know this is going to bug you as much as it's bugging me but I do want to make it clear that what I'm sharing is not as Extreme as most of what we've gone through on this website. I'm just venting to somebody who understands why I'm so frustrated! We just recently completed my kids drama production and we had to deal with a 14 year old child who had impulse-control issues as well...

    Why you need a therapist of your own

    PARENTS of survivor children need professional mental health care TOO because: 1.) You deserve a local, compassionate, objective listener who understands that disclosure is just the beginning of a very long journey for parents. You deserve to have a listener who is prepared to devote almost a whole hour every week just to hearing you out, and helping you to connect your thoughts, and helping you...

    I am going to share our story

    It's been almost two years since disclosure.  I'm still thinking about it a LOT.  Now that my kiddo has started school again and I sit at the bus stop every afternoon, I have to see the freaking ex-babysitter and her pedophile boyfriend bringing her kids home from their school.  I believe there are a lot of grey areas when it comes to a matter of decisions and topics.  This situation,...

    Move= Fresh Start

    So we have moved from our home in TN to Oklahoma because well the Army told us too. My husband doesn't want to inform anyone at our new location about our situation but I feel it needs to be shared with her teacher and other authority figures at school just in case something should come up. I don't know what to do. My daughter and I also had a chat before we left TN and I found out that she is...

    Hello I am new here and been reading for almost a month now. I guess I am finally able to post. I found out Aug 7th this year when detectives nocked on door with search warrant and that my babies boy 12 and daughter 10 made some allegations about my soon to be ex husband. Talking about being in denial and thinking that their biological father put them up to it to obtain costudy. Needles to say...

    Monster kid's BIO mom contacted me!

    She said she is worried about her kids because of the bruises, untreated rash and possible partial deafness she saw in them!  She contacted CPS, the police, etc. up where she lives...they were visiting...but they left pretty quickly and her parents (monster dad's sister & husband) don't believe that she has any reason to worry about the monster children being safe.  She's desperate to do...
