Synopsis by Alice Day
The children of alcoholic parents may realize that there are support systems, but might be afraid of what counseling entails. In Story of Hope, the stories of four children are told, before and after help was provided. In addition, four adult recovering alcoholics talk about the importance of counseling, and how their lives changed for the better after seeking assistance. The shameful aspects of their home situation may hamper a child's willingness to speak up, and this program points out the necessity of doing so. Placing their trust in an adult authority figure may be difficult, and the program also addresses that concern.
