We (my easy child and me) had our intervention with my difficult child who is in inpatient over speaker phone yesterday. The rules were that he could only say hello and goodbye and that we needed to stick to the facts of what concerns us about my difficult child's drug use. I'm not sure why, but I've been very angry for the last few days. I had no problem rattling concern after concern after concern. After speaking to my difficult child, the counselor and I had a private conversation. She told me that I'm working way harder than he is and that I need to stop enabling him. She recommended that I get to an alanon meeting as soon as I can. She also told me to read the book Liberated Parents, Liberated Children. Have any of you read it? She makes it sound so simple to just call the police whenever difficult child doesn't follow rules, take away the cell phone, revoke sponsorship on driver's license... I thought I was making a lot of progress with the enabling thing, but I guess I have a long way to go yet.
