There are millions of innocent children of the world who deserve love, respect, concern and loyalty. Jesus said many times, “ Suffer the little children to come to me and do not bother them.” Innocent children are untrained, undisciplined and lacking in capacity or experience. Many children suffer today like never before. They need helping navigating their way through the system of life while protecting and respecting themselves. Real life does not teach great lessons in times of ease and prosperity, joy and comfort. Children’s greatest character- building and faith-strengthening lessons mostly come during times of difficulties and suffering. From the time we are born until our death, God doesn’t waste anything – not even our heartaches and trials. Many innocent children are blessed with the empowerment of faith, education and experience of joy they deserve. This is god-sent and shows God’s love of human life. He said “I will show you a most excellent way : LOVE. What we do for others, defines who we are.

This new edition of Perfect Daughters, a pivotal book in the ACoA movement, identifies what differentiates the adult daughters of alcoholics from other women. When this groundbreaking book first appeared over ten years ago, Dr. Ackerman identified behavior patterns shared by daughters of alcoholics. Adult daughters of alcoholics—"perfect daughters" —operate from a base of harsh and limiting views of themselves and the world. Having learned that they must function perfectly in order to avoid unpleasant situations, these women often assume responsibility for the failures of others. They are drawn to chemically dependent men and are more likely to become addicted themselves. More than just a text that identifies these behavior patterns, this book collects the thoughts, feelings and experiences of twelve hundred perfect daughters, offering readers an opportunity to explore their own life's dynamics and thereby heal and grow. This edition contains updated information throughout the text, and completely new material, including chapters on eating disorders and abuse letters from perfect daughters in various stages of recovery, and helpful, affirming suggestions from Dr. Ackerman at the end of every chapter. This book is essential for every one who found validation, hope, courage and support in the pages of the original Perfect Daughters, as well as new readers and every therapist who confronts these issues. Also includes: a comprehensive reference section and complete index.
