Road To Recovery

Printer-Ready Page Layout

It is perfectly normal for your daughter to call complaining from rehab. Rehabilitation requires hard work. Hard work that will be rewarding, but difficult nonetheless.

Also, your daughter is used to manipulating you and consistently having you fix things for her. You shouldn’t worry Mom. She is in good hands. They are taking good care of her, feeding her, teaching her how to interact with others, as well as social and conflict resolution skills.

When she calls, hear her out, show her empathy and then ask, “So, what do you think you can do to resolve this issue?”

In the beginning, she will try to defer to you and your maternal advice. However, for right now the best advice is to re-direct her to work through the issues on her own. This will be a long and arduous process for you both, but one with worthwhile results.

In the meantime, take full advantage of the tranquility, and start taking care of yourself. You deserve it!
