Tips for Parents of Addicted Children


1. Strengthen the Relationship

  • Be careful and focused.
  • Show the sense of perception and understanding.
  • Be friendly and respectful.
  • Reduce distraction.
  • Focus on good.
  • Reduce the negative reaction

2. Encourage Positive Behaviours and Treatment

When it focuses excessively on the mistakes and poor decisions of the child, confidence, lower self-esteem and reduced sense of personal power will be diminished. These effects can lead to the continued use of substances. Instead, emphasize the positive and encourage the desired behaviors.

  • Try new healthy coping abilities.
  • Participate in new activities
  • Create more appropriate relationships with each other.
  • Encounter difficulties.
  • Focus on 3 Positive Messages
  • It is not recommended to compare your child with others, solve their problems for them or concentrate on past mistakes.

They are focused on three positive messages:

  • Can you do it? Example: “You can succeed, I believe.”
  • You have good ideas. Example: “Are you smart and capable, how can I help you?”
  • They are important. Example: “I appreciate you, and I need you in my life.”

3. Create and Reinforce Consistent Guidelines

The configuration of the policy will give the child clear expectations regarding acceptable and unacceptable behavior. Clear and consistent rules are associated with better results with dependency. Recommendations will not only help your child but also help determine their responses to the situations they represent.

4. Define clear limits

Adjust the rest limits when you can intelligently decide what you eat and what you do not eat. This will help you avoid inconsistencies by checking your limitations.
Follow the following questions to establish clear and clear boundaries with your child:

  • Are you ready to lie to your child?
  • Are you willing to sacrifice your needs for the needs of your child?
  • What is the consumption of psychoactive substances you can take?
  • How do you expect your child to be treated?
  • Are You Enabling Your Child?

Borders help to clarify the difference between helping a child and the opportunity for a child. An attachment is a sign of bad boundaries if you take on excessive responsibility for the actions of your child. Drives:

  • Make excuses.
  • Focus on yourself.
  • Focus on reducing pain in the short term.
  • Involuntary increase in use.

Strict boundaries can exacerbate the conflict in the short term, but they show your child that he cannot manipulate his actions. With clear and proper limitations, the responsibility for your child’s actions is to invest in them, which increases the likelihood of possible willingness to care.

5. Practice Self-Care

Self-Care is an act that makes your needs a priority and valuable tool for parents of dependent children. When you try to take care of your child’s needs during turbulence, your fears increase until you are burned out. Increased anxiety can occur as a series of physical and mental conditions, such as:

  • Depression
  • Fear
  • Decreased immune system (which is more susceptible to the disease)
  • Overweight
  • Problems of memory and attention
  • Heart diseases
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis

In some cases, it is impossible to maintain good health if the child’s actions do not change. To improve your well-being, you may need more restrictive restrictions and recommendations, since in extreme cases you can take into account the end of the relationship.
