i am a mom of three an 18 year old boy a 16 year old girl and a 10 year old girl. I raised my two eldest without the help of their biological father and it was sooo hard,he never contributed in any way towards their future's or their expenses.Both of my eldest two have left home at around the same age and it makes me wonder where i went wrong.My son left to be with his dad!!! why is that when they do bugger all to help through the younger years?,he is now in the army and doing nothing but drinking and causing me heart ache,hes argumentative and thinks he is invincible,he is off to afghan in march and this worries me sick.My 16 year ol left home just 1 week before xmas,she got this boyfriend and insisted he come to stay after he was made homless by deffending her! and when the time came that he had to go back to his father she said she would not stay at home without him!! so on the advice of my mum i let her go...BIG MISTAKE!!??.
xmas was hard and i did alot of crying which makes my hubby mad! They are not bad kids but they just seem to put everyone and every thing before family values..IS THIS NORMAL?? i had a hard life growing up..not a fault of my mother but it was very hard..i did rebel but had full resons for the way i acted...they however dont. I am now thinking of emigrating to canada to start a fresh life but i know it will break my heart to leave them both.What can i do they are of age..well one is.
I have no choice but to let them lead their lives the police say she is old enough to make her own decisions now and i can not make her return home!!! Thank god for my little one..she is a little gobby at times but a true blessing she hold me together!!
any advice would be great.. thanks shell.
