Children of alcoholic or addicted parents may be missing hope, courage, and self-esteem. The dysfunctional family is fueled by shame and chaos, stunting children's relationships and self-acceptance. Adult children of alcoholics and addicts need encouragement to overcome these childhood deprivations. This book models a program of serenity, spirituality, and acceptance through its meditations. Earnie Larsen and Carol Larsen Hegarty share the reflective and peaceful insight needed for growing up again, this time with plenty of love and patience.
