Feelings, thoughts, experiences- and assumptions from the childhood affect all of us, throughout life. The child carries these experiences into adult life. If the experiences come from an environment with an addictive parent, this secret can be transferred from childhood into their adult life. Share thoughts, feelings and questions and meet others who have had similar experiences.
