#66- How To Master Healthy Boundaries Vs. Consequences & Ultimatums

Substance and alcohol use can ruin not only your addicted loved one’s lives.. but also yours. If you’ve reached the end of your rope and you can’t take it anymore, should you deliver an ultimatum? Can ultimatums really solve the problem? For today’s episode, Chris and Danny discuss the differences between ultimatums, consequences, and healthy boundaries. They describe how ineffective ultimatums are because the person giving the ultimatum is not always committed to following through on it. If a parent tells a child that they will be kicked out if they continue to use substances or drink, but if the parent is not actually willing to follow through, then the child will learn that they can continue their addiction without consequence. Chris and Danny also argue that ultimatums and consequences are usually ineffective because they are reactionary and not well thought out. Setting healthy boundaries is a better choice because it requires more insights and planning.
