Re: Letting addicts around your kids

I, too, have quite a few addicts in my family. I have chosen to distance myself from them anyway, as I am sure you know, addicts tend to bring drama! So for me, there's never really a situation where my kids would see the addict passed out or drunk/high. They do, however, see the addicts occasionally. I have no problem with them getting to know my family members in a casual way. But it is not often...maybe every few months.

My mother in particular knows that when she is clean she sees my kids and when she is using she does not. She doesn't even bother calling when she is using anyway.
Wife to Bob, and mommy to Ben and Matt. Love my boys!
