From the Publisher
This is a message all young people need to be able to believe. Unfortunately when people are addicted they often lose the ability to act in loving ways toward those they love.
Growing up in an addicted family usually means living by the rule: It is not all right to talk about the drinking or using in your family. Working through the loneliness, fear, and frustration by expressing feelings is what this book is all about. This workbook gives children the opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings and to better understand addiction.
From the Author
After many years and thousands of children using this workbook, it has been revised to address the fact that today, if a child lives with addiction, it may very well be to other drugs, not just alcohol. I have rewritten some parts and added new pictures making it possible for more children of addiction to experience their own recovery process.
The basic premise of this book is that chemical dependency is a disease. The addict is a sick person, not a bad person. This disease affects not only the addicted person but those who love that person as well. Having been raised in an alcoholic family myself, by the age of six I shared the feelings of loneliness, fear and frustration of my family. This is a book that will help the "others" affected by chemical dependency to become well.
There is hope for the addicted person and those affected by their addiction. We, the children, do not have to remain confused and silent.
Based on an original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series, and the first official Harry Potter story to be presented on stage. Pre-order the official script book today. Kindle | Hardcover
