The 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous have been adapted for Al-Anon and Alateen, and many other “12 Step programs” because of their simplicity, their “power,” and the intimate nature with which they offer a person guidance to people looking for hope and help. Jerry Moe & Don Polman have provided a version for kids in Kids Power: Healing Games for Children of Alcoholics. These steps can be helpful to kids at anytime, but especially in struggles when addressing life''s major problems, issues, and challenges.
