Jodie Sweetin Will Be Open With Kids About Her AddictionsMariaLianos
Jodie Sweetin says she won’t lie to her kids about her struggles with addiction.
The mom of two girls, Zoie, 3 and Beatrix, 8 months, struggled with drug and alcohol addiction on and off for over a decade.
“I’ve been really open about what I’ve gone through in general, so if they ask me about it, I’ll be open with them, too,” Jodie says.
“I don’t think there’s any reason to hide it. It’s nothing I’m ashamed of. But just like with various people my own age, I’m not just going to go out of my way to talk about it with my kids.”
Luckily Jodie has moved forward from her troubles and is enjoying motherhood.
“[My struggles are] pretty much in the past,” The former Full House star told People. “Hopefully, it’ll never be anything my kids have to be a part of. I wish I hadn’t gone through that, but I did.”
Jodie is also going to marry Beatrix’s father, Morty Coyle, who she describes as “wonderful and fantastic.”
“My life is so good that I’m not missing out on anything,” she says.
