Raising Kids In Combat is the ultimate resource for parents who want to know how to prepare for every battle facing their family.

We took the current experiences of an 18 year old high school student who fought his way back from a life threatening mental health struggle and gripping pornography habit -- and combined it with the expertise of an addiction recovery professional who has worked with hundreds of amazing families over the last 10 years and created RKIC.

We know what is taking kids down these days, and we are here to teach you how to become the best weapon in your kids arsenal.
