Sorry Redundant Alert… I posted this as a question in a message, but now I want to open this question out to the forum so others can respond.
Do you have a son or daughter who is also affected by a sibling with an SUD. What have you learned to help balance the attention and focus for the child who uses and the child who does not?
I ask because I have two children (32/31 still babies, to me ) one has a SUD, and the other is not so afflicted. I am challenged by showing them appropriate amounts of concern/communication/function.
How do you balance? I could use some advice. Thanks.
