Episode 39: What About My Kids?

This is something I get asked a lot: What about my kids? 

As mamas we worry about our kids anyway, but even moreso when they are in a home with an alcoholic parent.

In this episode I will share with you some of the things I wish I had done differently when my husband was deep in addiction where my kids were concerned. 

I'll also give you some great (free) resources that can help you help them through this difficult time.
