my son is 18, has a 17 yr old girlfriend, lives with his dad, spends all his time at his girlfriends home, forbids his girlfriend to be alone with me, ignores me and says i'm annoying. always had a best friend relationship with my kids until he moved in with his alcoholic father and learned why i divorced him. lost my apt, car, pet, daughter had to go live with grandparents 2 years ago because ex husband stopped paying child support for 4 months to punish me for divorcing him, after 17 years being divorced. i feel devastated and lost. i have ptsd now, suffered a concussion from work in 2012, with short term memory issues, weakness, digestive issues, 100 lb weight gain and trying to explain this to him is just not getting thru to him. he skated through school on a D average, because he is so smart and felt school was dumb and worthless and his father did not push him to do better. he doesn't answer my texts to his girlfriend. he doesnt have phone service because i took it away when he lost his job after promising to pay his bill. his girlfriends father pays for his plane tickets for him to go with his girlfriend to visit her father. this i find enabling my son to be irresponsible and expecting his girlfriend;s family to cater to his needs. my son's father's mother caters to her son whenever he quits a job...she owns a home he lives in, buys him groceries and pays his bills and buys him a car. my son sees this and says "nanna will buy my dad a car and i can have his"...my 20 year old daughter has tried to talk to him about responsibility but my son believes that he will be catered to just like his father. i guess i can only sit back and wait for him to become mature and realize i'm a good mother and i'm here for him when he wants a relationship. i love and miss him so much. he and his sister are the light of my life.
