As a child, I unfortunately encountered problems with addiction in my family. I was given this book by a ffriend of my mother's. Together, my mom and I would read it, and it ultimately helped me cope with understanding "daddy's problem." I believe this is an excellent choice for children who are seeing the effects of addiction in their families. It is also a very informative books for those fortunate children who do not have to deal with addiction. It was definitely a huge help for me!

This title is a valuable tool in dealing with addiction issues within a family. It assists a family member or other mentor in opening the lines of communication about virtually any tough topic. The children's book gives the child an item to take ownership in. Meanwhile, obtaining the leaders guide that accompanies the children's book will assist adults in understanding the developmental stages and reactions that the child is experiencing. This is a valuable tool for families!

I bought this book for my 10-year old granddaughter who lives with me part time. Her mother has stayed sober twice for two years and then relapsed. This workbook is even better than I imaged! She started reading and working in it as soon as it arrived in the mail. She was so excited to have her feelings and experiences validated. I would highly recommend it!

As a therapist, I found this book to be a really good way to discuss the issue of substance abuse in the family to a young--school age-- child

this is a good children's book that should be handed out at all Ala-teen meetings and even to adults with drinking and drug problems.

An excellent, simple introduction to the devestating effects of living with an alcoholic or drug addict. This is such a widespread problem in today's society. It is easier to cope with something when there is an awareness of what is really going on. This book is written in such a way that not only is it of use to young people, it is of use to anyone of any age who has been subjected to the insanity that exists when someone you love is out of control. I have read many adult books on the subject. It is important that there exists a children's book that opens the door to understanding the nature of the problem and offers simple coping tools.

We bought this to read to our niece when she visits. We were nervous she wouldn't like the idea of it, but she warmed right up and it was so easy for her to understand. It stimulated questions we could answer and gave her a sense we are on her side.

Thank you for a great find!
