Great ways for Reaching Out on Father’s Day

It can really be meaningful and helpful to your recovery to reach out. There’s something powerfully healing about connecting with a parent (as long as it’s safe.) Making an effort to honor them tends to bring us peace, whatever their reaction.

If there’s been little contact, even a text can mean a lot to Dad. Cards and calls show that you remembered. A gift or making the time to do something he likes probably means more to him than he lets on. And it gives you the serenity of knowing you did what you could.
