Podcast #27 Codependency & Denial 

In this week's episode, Annie and Laurie deep dive into issues and dynamics of being a "codependent" parent, discussing how this happens in early years of parenting when we feel responsible for our child's behavior, grades etc.  …and how that builds toward issues that arise when addiction or SUD enter a family. Both share instances of being in denial when signs were there, versus going on instinct and searching for truths we know the signs are pointing to. Lots to ponder in this week's conversation!
