De Blasio Releases Video Of Daughter Talking About Her Addiction, Depression Issues

Clearly somebody was about to run a story about de Blasio daughter Chiara having drug and alcohol problems because the de Blasio people just released this video:




It's an important video, no matter what the reason the de Blasio people had to go up with it now.

Wouldn't it be nice if Mayor Bill de Blasio used the experience his daughter has had with depression and alcohol/drug use to provide schools the supports they need to help other children who suffer from the same problems?

I have seen a sharp increase in kids suffering from cutting (as in self-harm), drug and/or alcohol use, depression, eating disorders and other emotional issues in these past few years.

Schools need the social and emotional supports to help students, not only the one's suffering from these issues, but for all students, so that they can learn healthy ways to deal with the stresses of modern life (especially in the Common Core Era.)

I'll have more on this later.

  1. Ashame the media is so bottom dwelling....but u r probably correct...some of her old "friends" were probably already blabbing about past history of drug and booze use to "the papers"...

    1. I've read since that the three major dailies knew this story and held it throughout the campaign. So hard to know why BdB went up w/ this.

  2. Have you read the surveys?
    About half the teens in the city use substances that are illegal for their age group.
    If this were a generation ago it would have gone, like I've tried pot, hash and acid.
    Yes, if she was addicted or using them to a wreckless degree then that's a problem.
    But it's none of our business. That this is a major story is as cringe-worthy as Gov. Paterson and his wife's telling all about their own affairs in pre-emptive fashion.

    1. It is important that we use this story to press for additional supports for NYC schools to help other children who suffer similarly.
