Watching your child struggle with addiction is an extremely painful experience. As a parent you innately want to protect and nurture your child, doing everything in your power to protect them no matter what they are going through. You are a built-in advocate and support system for your child. But what do you do when your child develops an addictive disorder? How can you possibly love your child from afar when they are clearly in pain and when they have been rendered incapable of taking care of themselves? You might feel inclined to continue offering support to your child, but enabling negative behavior patterns can be extremely detrimental and can hinder the recovery process. How do you know if you’re enabling your child in their addiction? If you do discover you’re enabling your child, what steps can you take to help?
