John was a father of three who was arrested and charged with child abuse. He was raising his children the way he was raised. He did not understand it was abuse. He came to The Family Tree ashamed of his situation, unclear of what help he would get. He left empowered with the tools he needed to make a change for his family. The first thing he did was apologize to his children, then forgive himself. From there, the healing began.
The Parents Anonymous® support group has helped me to go on, to say the way I’m doing it just isn’t working and to take a breath. I learned that you can worry all you want, but that doesn’t change things. You learn how to handle those everyday storms, when they refuse to do homework or break curfew.
