This book came about because one mother of a young alcoholic and drug addict wanted to create a daily reader for other parents of youth abusing drugs or alcohol. She enlisted contributions from other parents whose children are in one of the Enthusiastic Sobriety Programs throughout the United States. Each entry is based on one parent or family’s viewpoint and experience. We come from all walks of life and all kinds of families: married parents with biological or adopted children, single mothers, single fathers, divorced parents with shared parenting time, blended families, mothers who work outside the home, and homemaker mothers
