Reassuming parental responsibility once we achieve sobriety presents a dramatic change that our children may not welcome and we may be ill-equipped to handle. The information in this multi-format program helps those of us who are parents recovering from substance abuse:
- understand what limits are and how to set them jointly with our children
- learn how to establish consequences, and determine when and how to enforce them
- define our own personal limits and be good role models for our children
- use family meetings and contracts
Setting Rules and Limits is one of three DVDs within The Real Life Parenting Skills Program.
Parents in early recovery learn that there's more to good parenting than being sober. Setting Rules and Limits DVD shows viewers how to set boundaries and establish consequences.
