I raised a heroin addict

I think this is a really interesting, honest and brave piece from a mom whose child is battling heroin addiction. She makes a very interesting point about not letting her her son fail enough. How can we teach our children to fail better?

She also educated him about alcohol and drugs but not prescription drugs and how oxy-cotin can turn into heroin education. Teaching kids to fail and recover from failure is an important life skill so I’m really grateful to her for flagging that up. Please read her piece here.
