My son is facing 40 years in prison

My 20 year old son is in jail and is being sentenced in a few days. He is facing up to 40 years. I don't know how to talk to him, or say at this time because it seems everything I say makes him angry and ends up cursing me and telling me he hates me. I can't imagine how he's feeling...I don't know what to do.

You know mom? All we can do is our best to raise them and hope the best for them keep them in prayer as well as for our own sttrength and acceptance to endure this tragic seperation,"that we are absolutely powerless " to get them out or take their place. If you li e anywhere in california?you should be bappy to hear that their is a senate bill 261 about to be voted in on that you may choose to investigate the modifications that will soon be going into affect changing the law that gives young offenders whom tet sentenced to lengthly adult prison terms an opportunity to parole after serving 15 years of there sentenced term please feei frto investigate and possibly support the senate bill 261 at i wish him the best as well as yourself goodluck and god bless

I don't think there is anything for you to do. This is about him, and what he did. Not about you. You are not responsible. Tell him you love him.

I'm sorry that your son made such poor choices to commit a bad enough crime to be up for a 40 year sentence.

Counseling may help you get through this. Good luck

If he's being sentenced, then he must have been found guilty. If he's facing 40 years then it must have been something pretty bad. We don't know his crimes. We don't know what he's feeling. And you don't say what you have tried to talk to him about. So it's difficult to give any advice on what to do.

It sucks that your son made choices that landed him in prison. No mother wants that for her child. It sucks that he is being disrespectful toward you. I don't really know what else to say.
