This is so true especially when it comes to things such as mental health issues such as addiction, domestic violence and child abuse. I choose to go to anger management groups when my children were little out of fear of what I might some day be capable of, but mostly because of what my childhood was like. Unfortunately, addiction is very much so a real battle with the next generation in my family but I have faith the cycle will stop with generations yet to come.
