It's okay to let your parents know of your struggles. Ian didn't want to alarm his mom but thought Emma really needed her help. So he suggested his mom talk to Emma. He hopes his mom follows through before Emma gets in deeper.
- Who else could Ian talk to? Besides your parents, who can you talk to about difficult situations in your life?
- What Next?
Being deployed might make it harder for Ian's mom to intervene. When your family prepare for deployment, it can be helpful to have a discussion about who you should turn to when you need advice.
