I am getting divorced this summer. I am leaving all my friends (emotional support-AP parenting support) to live closer to my Parents in Miami. They are extremley DEtatchment pareting as well as my grandparents, siblings etc. They had 6 kids (whom all have our own issues from them being workaholics). They don't just disagree but continuously tell me I am doing it wrong and that I am causing my own stress. They refuse to ever babysit or watch them and are on business trips every week/other week.. one of the "pros" of me being near them is that they claim they will help me with furniture to set up a new apt (they only agreed to let me and my 3 chidlren under the age of 5 stay with them for 2 weeks until i can find a job/apt. They also say they can help with $500/month to help make ends meet as long as i follow their requirments. since i have no money, credit and I am only 24 starting a new life (after leaving a controlling husband) It makes me think, is it worth it to move from Boston to Miami only to be criticized non stop and controlled by my parents.
