I was a good mother to my son. He is 23 now and hasn't spoken to me in over 2 years. It happened when I called him on how he was using me for money and being verbally abusive. I told him I couldn't allow him to continue to speak to me that way because it hurt too much and set a bad example for his younger siblings. He is the only one of my four children who is from my first husband. I also told him how hurt I had been over the way he had deserted us in favor of his bio father who had grossly neglected him his whole life until he was 16. I told him all of this in the kindest, most non-threatening way I could, but it destroyed my relationship with him. He wants nothing to do with me now. Has anyone ever been through this? Will it get better? Am I doomed to be estranged from my child forever? Please help. Thanks.
