I'm 19 and I have a 21 month old son. We live in a small rural town with my fiance and we are trying to find a house to buy.
I get along o.k. with my mum, but she has scitzophrenia and depression.
We can handle her for small amounts of time, but when I was living at home there was nothing but fights.
I want to try to help my mum, but I dont want to expose my son to her sort of behavior.
She also has a bad addiction to marajuanna, and goes really mental when she doesnt have any.
About 3 months ago she suddenly got it in her head that she can just move in with us when we buy a house, and I dont know how to tell her that I dont want her too.
She was a terrible mother to me. She has been ok as a grandmother to my son, but I believe that is because we live far apart at the moment.
Anyone got any ideas as to how to go about this without making her feel like Im abandoning her?
She has the mental capacity of a 15y year old, at best.
