Courtney Love’s way of raising her daughter

Frances and her mother enjoy spending time together, playing guitar, and creating arts. They even live one minute away from each other. Love often gushes about her daughter and her upbringing, saying that she wanted to give her girl a normal childhood. But there are some things that might have led to Frances' addiction.

It’s a well-known fact that both the rocker and the actress previously abused drugs. So, nobody was surprised when Courtney Love revealed she took heroin while being pregnant with her daughter. Back then, she was pretty confident that the drug would not harm her child’s health. As she says:

I used it once then stopped. I knew she would be fine.

Celebrating sobriety anniversary

In an Instagram post, the 25-year-old admitted she suffered from some kind of dependence (she actually didn’t reveal any details). But now, she is perfectly fine, healthy, and sober. Cobain decided to make this pure moment public to put aside her fear of being misunderstood or judged.

I thought I would start this post by using a pure moment in Oahu amongst nature, with my love. This moment is a representation of who I am on February 13th, 2018. It feels significant here, now because it’s my 2nd sober birthday. It’s an interesting and kaleidoscopic decision to share my feelings about something so intimate in a public forum . The fact that I’m sober isn’t really public knowledge, decidedly and deliberately. But I think it’s more important to put aside my fear about being judged or misunderstood or typecast as one specific thing. I want to have the capacity to recognize & observe that my journey might be informative, even helpful to other people who are going through something similar or different. It is an everyday battle to be in attendance for all the painful, bazaar, uncomfortable, tragic, fucked up things that have ever happened or will ever happen. Self destruction and toxic consumption and deliverance from pain is a lot easier to adhere to. Undeniably, for myself and those around me becoming present is the best decision I have ever made. How we treat our bodies directly correlates to how we treat our souls. It’s all interconnected. It has to be. So I’m gonna take today to celebrate my vibrant health and the abundance of happiness, gratitude, awareness, compassion, empathy, strength, fear, loss, wisdom, peace and the myriad of other messy emotions I feel constantly. They inform who I am, what my intentions are, who i want to be and they force me to acknowledge my boundaries/limitations. I claim my mistakes as my own because I believe them to contribute to the dialogue of my higher education in life. I am constantly evolving. The moment I stop my evolution is the moment I disservice myself and ultimately those I love. As cheesy and cornball as it sounds life does get better, if you want it to. I’ll never claim I know something other people don’t. I only know what works for me and seeking to escape my life no longer works for me. Peace, love, empathy (I’m going to reclaim this phrase and define it as something that’s mine, filled with hope and goodness and health, because I want to ) Frances Bean Cobain

She also advises other people to constantly develop and improve their lives because the change is only possible when you want it. It’s not the easiest path, but the model wanted to change for those around her, including her beau, Matthew Cooke.

Family influence

Was there any family influence? Probably, as genetics greatly affects whether a person is at risk of becoming addicted to alcohol or drugs. Family-related risk factors, such as conflicts as well as depressed or abusive parents, make the situation even worse.

But still, it doesn’t determine our lives as many people from addicted families never become addicted in the first place. And growing up in a celebrity family also doesn't mean these children cannot overcome their addictions. There are many great examples, and Michael Douglas' son is one of them.
