Together, watch this video of a day in the life of 10-year-old Salia. She has three little sisters and a mom and dad in recovery, and they’re all thriving now. Afterward, ask:

  • How does Salia explain what addiction is?
  • How is Salia’s family the same as your family? How is it different?
  • What does Salia do when she has big feelings?
  • How does she meditate? Let’s watch again and try it together.
  • Why is drawing and writing about her feelings important to Salia?
  • What does her family like to do together? What do you like to do with your family?
