Incredible Years: Rob’s Story
Rob is a father of one and has spent the last 8 years getting help for trauma and addiction. Incredible Years was an important support system for him while he quit drinking. One of the things Rob learned while participating in Incredible Years was that drinking while parenting is not effective.
“You know that old AA-type commercial where the parent is passed out on the couch while his kids eat cereal around him? That used to be me on the couch.”
Now, he’s an active presence in his son’s life, and says he is way more patient, “I pick my battles.” It is important to Rob to model good behavior and relationships to his son so that he learns how to behave in future relationships.
