My ex-husband has brainwashed my 16yr old child to the point to where my child won't even answer my calls or texts. Is it bad if I move 3 hours away?? And wait until my child finds the truth and looks to me for the honest truth?? I will always be only be a call away. I love my child. Yet there's nothing here for me...

My exact story. It's killing me. I wish I knew what to do. I have very little support here and I'm just extremely drained emotionally. I hope we can all find what it is we're supposed to do. I just want my son to grow happy and healthy. Mom

You have to live your life. You can't just sit around waiting on a 16 year old to change his/her mind. Do what you need to do for yourself. (I'm going to refer to your kid as "he" because it's easier)
However, keep calling, keep texting, keep making an effort to keep in contact. He will remember that, even if he doesn't respond right now. I know it's discouraging to get rebuffed, but you just have to keep doing it anyway. It's the best thing you can do to show him that you love him. Never give up.
