There were some things in I wasn’t prepared to parent through. Having to explain their father’s struggles with addiction to my kids was one of those things.
Bullying. The not so last frontier of childhood. Despite the passing of decades, it is one piece of childhood that refuses to go away.

Before, if someone was talking about addiction in a negative way and I would instantly jump up with statistics and facts. Not any more.
When they were still bitties, my boys spent $250 on Smurf berries. They had no idea they were spending real money—and neither did we until our credit card statement showed up.
