Every day parents face heartbreaking situations. Raising a child struggling with mental health issues, addictions, depression, suicidal thoughts, eating disorders or just the normal angst associated with growing up can be frightening and confusing.
When all you've done is not enough, when your child seems lost and you feel inept and impotent, Dr. Reedy can help you take the necessary steps to find your child not with cursory cures or snappy solutions but rather by effecting positive change in your own behavior.
On your journey you will confront, reevaluate, and grow confident in your beliefs as a parent. You will learn how to communicate your intentions lovingly and effectively to your child.
Reedy's process will teach you how to find peace and security in your skills as a parent and help you get comfortable exactly where you are. Even if you've made mistakes, even if you think you've failed, you still have the power to be a great parent.
Healthy parenting leads to a healthy life for your whole family, and The Journey of the Heroic Parent will be your guide as you walk the path to hope.

Loved it! Will read over again and again!
I found this book to be just what I needed! Full of helpful stories and gentle reminders to be more authentic and interested in self-care. Sharing helpful ways to hold boundaries with people around us so we can prioritize our self-care. The author was vulnerable in sharing from his life, and emphasized the importance of taking care of ourselves and our wounded pasts. Letting go of the idea of controlling those around us. Another concept I liked was parenting our children with their needs in mind instead of our own. Brilliant. Will have to read again and again.

Very helpful on a variety of levels.
Behavior issues, addiction issues, alternative educational settings, therapy, this book has it all. The message though is help to handle it all in the most beneficial way. When we realize what we as parents have control over- our boundaries- our kids learn to take ownership for their problems. They do the work to fix the problems instead of us as parents. That never works anyway. I am not only purchasing this book to highlight, I am starting it again from the beginning on Audible. My sister and I also plan to go through it together. Between us, our kids range in age from 18 - 28.
