What do you do when your child tells you that they hate you and they wished you were dead?

It sounds as though your child is grown/almost grown and there isn't much you can do at that age. Maybe you can mail a letter with no return address and on the back of the envelope write "I love You no matter what happens" in all caps. That way he at least gets that part of the message without opening the letter. He will realize one day, in his own time, what a mistake he has made and come home to you and his father.

I divorced his dad after a long abusive life and divorce my ex as quickly as I could.My youngest son got a reaction all right. He moved to his dad's and refuses to talk to me or take my letters or phone calls. I do tell him that I love him but he screams and says to leave him alone. He moved out of his dad's now and barely talks to anyone.

just remind them you love them no matter what, most of the time its just a phase or to get a reaction
