A friend of mine is a single mom with 3 girls 15, 12, & 8. The father is no where to be found. The problem is her oldest daughter, she has been cutting herself, throwing up a lot, and she is sexually active! My friend has been told about the cutting and she allows the boyfriend to stay over. The daughter has asked her to tell her NO, to be a MOM to her. This young girl is in desperate need of a mother. To make it worse, my friend is a hoarder seriously, like I have seen on tv. Recently they hauled at least a dozen pick truck loads to the dump and a few more to goodwill to donate. All 3 of her kids deserve more. I have been asked by my friends sister to talk to her. I have also been asked by our church leader to talk with her. My dilemma is, yes she is a friend but a fairly new one. I have only known her for a little over a year. She is a terrible mother, and I need to or have been asked to nicely talk to her about it all.

These tapes have been really eye-opening for me lately. I know there's a book, too. Maybe if you listen/read it and understand, it will give you insight in how to approach her, or even to share it with her. Healing the Shame that Binds You
