The Big Idea: There are seven important reminders for children whose parents struggle with addiction—the first three are what children can’t do, but the next four are what they can do.
Remember the 7 Cs!
- Print and distribute this mini-poster.
- Talk through each “C” with children and explain it.
- Invite children to color the page to later display in their rooms (or save it privately).
