So many questions...

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.

Is everything okay?

I kind of know what you're going through. My friend's sister died of an overdose last month and it was hard trying to explain it to the kids. They had a hard time understanding the concept of it all. It's scary.
