A Practical Guide for Parents  Jun 22, 2006
Kathy Pride has created a practical guide for parents on a very difficult subject. Kathy has not written from the perspective of an "expert" but from the heart of a mother who has been through this process. She gives down to earth advice that she used to win this war. Parents who find themselves in a similar situation will find a comrade-in-arms when Kathy joins them in the trenches to help them fight their own war. I highly recommend this book.
This is a must read for parents, siblings, counselors and coaches...  Jun 16, 2006
Winning the Drug War at Home is a authentic account of a family's challenges that arise when they find their two sons are using drugs. It provides essential information that we all need to understand the impact of love, prayer and positive communication. The book was so thought provoking that I couldn't put it down. It's a must read for anyone who has been at a loss for understanding how to effectively interact with individuals impacted by substance abuse.
A testament of the healing powers of faith, family support, and love unfolds  Jun 11, 2006
Winning the Drug War at Home is the autobiography of a Christian mother who catches her seventeen-year-old son using marijuana. Set over a sixteen-month period, Winning the Drug War at Home follows the sentencing of the drug- abusing son to a therapeutic wilderness program in Utah, culminating with his departure for college. Excerpts of letters that the son wrote while in Utah offer the perspective of the teenager, in addition to the point of view of the parents in the main narration. Winning the Drug War at Home reflects the author's devout faith in God, and her struggles wrestling with a family crisis; a testament of the healing powers of faith, family support, and love unfolds.
Winning the drug war at home  May 2, 2006
This author is so easy to read. She has flare and a style that is smooth and draws you in. I read it in one evening - valuable information that I will use in counseling my own patients and parenting my own children.
Hope for parents!  Apr 19, 2006
The Pride family has four children. Second child Matt was arrested for possession of marijuana use. The system wanted to send him to a "boot camp" after he didn't follow the rules and earlier treatment failed. Matt's mother fund a therapeutic wilderness program that the system finally approved.

Any parent can learn from this book, written with a Christian focus, if you are dealing with a child who is acting out in damaging ways--to him/herself, the family, the home, and the parent's marriage.

The author does a good job of describing her reactions as a "controlling mother" to his behavior. She found when they went through this experience with Matt, there was nothing to read on the subject--so she wrote it.

We "live with" Matt and his parents through his arrest, first treatment, the wilderness program and then after-care.

As a woman new to a strong faith, she ends each chapter with H-O-P-E: Holy Scripture, Observation, Pray, Encouragement. These points really sum up the chapter--and gave hope.

The Pride family is not the first and will not be the last to go suffer along with a child who makes bad choices related to drug or alcohol use and addiction and the dysfunction, lying and rage that often rides along.

Son Matt grew through his crisis as did the entire family, causing Kathy to change her way of parenting and the couple to improve their communication and decision making.

This is a real walk-in-my-moccasins story that many families can relate to. Often what happens to the rest of the family while one child is acting out is dismissed or not acknowledged. This book does. Matt's problems become everyone's problems, with people taking sides, including grandparents.

The author used Matt's letters home and the parents' letters to him as a way to tell how both sides were feeling--how each saw what had happened. A secondary big problem was that the mother and father didn't always agree on what was best.

Now a few years later Matt seems to be doing well as is the couple and the other children.

Armchair Interviews says: This book can give parents hope by their words and support from biblical references and knowledge that God always has a plan.
