I don't like not having the answers. I really don't like it when I don't have the answers to the BIG questions.
How do you respond when someone your child knows almost dies (practically in front of them) from an overdose?
How do you explain that not all drug users are "scary bad people" but still warn them about drugs?
How do answer when you kid watching the ambulances assembled outside asks you, "Mommy, what's an overdose?"
Parenting can sometimes be hard in ways you don't expect. I certainly didn't expect this topic at 7 years old.
I didn't want this for my kids. I didn't want to answer these questions today.
