We are being asked your most pressing questions by Gary Jones of the "Get With the Program" Radio show.
A key component that threatens trust is fear.
Our son’s action earlier this week broke the trust and its primary cause was fear.
Leaving the house without telling us was caused by “ a fear that we’d say no”.

Then avoidance and shame kicked in about what he’d done ✅ and he hid avoiding the consequences...
