My advice for parents is to push past the uncomfortable and the fear of leaving your daughter here. It’s not easy and it’s worth it. This place isn’t terrible. It’s not forceful or fear based. The tools I learned here will help me for the rest of my life and it is worth it. I’m not afraid of things anymore. I am confident in myself and in my family’s work here. Clearview has helped me build a foundation for my family. Looking back on my time at Clearview, the biggest change in myself that I have seen is that I’ve found joy and I’m more positive about life and my future. I feel like I can be mad, sad, or afraid and its like a secondary emotion temporarily covering up joy. I feel like I can always fall back on that. I have a much more positive outlook on life. I believe in myself and in a future. I have a lot of self-love and acceptance. I’m also proud of myself. I know what I am capable of and I’m happy with the work I’ve done. I also love my parents.
