How can I convince my child to go to rehab without sounding like im judging him, lecturing, nagging.
Is there a right way and a wring way to approach him on this subjest. He uses methamphetimines and opiates and was recently kicked out of the home because if the trouble the addiction has caused. Hes 23 and homeless. Please give me your best advice and helo. Thank You
It's not going to help, in my experience, to go to rehab if the person doesn't truly want to be there. Nobody is ever going to convince someone to stop using drugs with words of persuasion. A body has to want to stop.
You could offer that he could come back home after he gets out though, I reckon. A person always needs a place to live.
A person is only going to get clean if they want to get clean. There is very little you can do or say to convince him. It usually takes being very along and hitting bottom before they realize they need to make a change.
My mother crashed her car and went to jail before she realized she needed rehab for her alcoholism.

What makes some people think that they have the right to judge another person?Could they have a "god" complex?

From what I've read in the bible, we are to identify wrong behaviours and speak up but we are not to play judge because that makes us prideful and reluctant to take the beam out of our own eye. Many Christians insist that it is their duty to judge and they end up judging everyone about everything....

Who or what gives you the right to Judge others?Playing the judge and jury game goes on in this life, and in our reality no matter whom we may assume we are, who we think we may be, or whatever we become. Judging others isn't an advisable thing to do, but some folks never learn. (What's your...
