Breaking The Cycle Of Enabling: A Checklist For Parents Of Addicted Loved Ones

Helping is doing something for someone that he or she is not capable of doing for himself.
Michelle Weidenbenner brings a prayer and checklist for parents of addicted loved ones who want to break the cycle of enabling in the latest episode of Moms Letting Go Without Giving Up. Addiction is a family disease, and parents often struggle with enabling their loved ones' unacceptable behavior. The episode offers a comprehensive checklist of questions to help parents reflect on their enabling behavior and take the necessary steps to break the cycle.
Michelle reminds parents that self-care is crucial, and they shouldn't beat themselves up for past mistakes. The checklist includes questions like whether parents have covered a financial debt resulting from drug or alcohol use or excused their loved one from keeping a commitment because of depression. If parents answer yes to three or more questions, they might be enabling their loved ones.
The episode's practical tips aim to empower parents to help their loved ones without doing things they are capable of doing themselves. Michelle reminds parents that helping their loved ones on their journey to recovery can have a positive impact on others. The episode ends with a message of hope and a call to action for parents to start reflecting on their enabling behavior.
