Re: Letting addicts around your kids
my mom is an alchoholic and she has gotten progressively worse over the years. now that my dad died of cancer a few years ago she no longer works and has a deadbeat guy living with her. Even though she lives about 7 hours away, I have decided she can't come for visits anymore until she cleans herself up (which might be never). She never calls us, shows no interest in my 4 children and I don't think she deserves to have an influence in their lives. it's sad but it's not really my fault and the less contact I have with her, the more peaceful I feel. (unless I am up all night worrying about what will happen to her). it's horrible.
