Tired single mom

User - posted on 10/06/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I understand 1000%of what all you ladies are going through. I myself am going through the same situation with not just one but two of my sons. I have broken my back for them and I get no appreciation what so ever. My sons are 18 going on 19 and 16 going on 17. It's sad when those are the only two children I have and they have been the biggest disappointment in my life. I've had them to destroy my property because they get so upset. They curse at me and are very abusive and disrespectful. I've sent my oldest son to Canada twice to live with their dad and he wants to come back here. I've given him this last chance and I'm regretting it like crazy! Their father is not a good father as he doesn't pay child support, lives with his mom, in and out of jail with no job. I've had stage 3 thyroid cancer and just got out of icu from being diagnosed with diabetes. I am at the point to where I'm ready to turn my back on both of my boys. My oldest smokes weed, drink that lean and alcohol and pop pills. My youngest has been kicked out of school and has been in trouble with the law. He sees my oldest son do the things he do and tries to pull the same stunts. For my own sake I'm tired of trying to get them to do right it feels like a losing battle. I wish there laws to help protect single parents from children like these.

Tamika I am so sorry you are going through this with your sons - and with your own health. Have you looked into community supports of any type for you and your sons? Are there any type of residential programs they may qualify for since they do drugs, drink and the youngest has already been in trouble with the law? That may be an option to look into right now.....
