Thanks Linda Lou for the advise. I am coming around to seeing it as less of a result of my bad parenting skills. They are all great kids and for that I am thankful.

And, your pastor had great advice; thanks for sharing it.

Hi ladies,

I know this is an ald thread, but was just wondering if Cinderella is still treading the boards? If so, how are you going with your family. Would be good to hear how everything is paning out

I know this is a very old thread but happened by it. Just want you all to know that if you keep loving & praying along with some tough love it can pan out. My dd #2 got veryy involved in the drug world. I really thought we lost her but finally she decided she want to live & change & checked herself in a long term drug program. When she contacted us with what she was doing we supported her & visited as much as we could. She was in treatment for a year & in a half way house for 6 months.She has been drug free for 15 years & is a wonderful person. She went to a tough school but thank God turned out ok. So hang in there.

Looking around and this thread seemed interesting to read. Wondering the same thing; are any of these posters still around FC and wondered if things have gotten better with their children?

One of my sons got involved ins ome things we didn't approve of once unbeknowst to us and he came to DH and me and asked for help. We got him the help and he came through it just fine thank goodness. I know how heartbreaking some of the things your children do can be.
