    I've lost my Son and all hope

    I raised my son as a single mother and I admit to a lot of problems while I was raising him. I was very unhappy as a result of damage that a Doctor had done to me. I regret the life and insecurities that my Son had to deal with growing up, but I've always loved him. I have not seen my son in 13 years. I have never seen my Grandchildren. I had some legal problems when he was growing up due to my...

    It will get better

    Hello - Our son was a great kid.  He never gave us any trouble.  We were very close, especially he and his Dad.  He went to college, graduated, got a great job and then he met a girl at his job.  That's when everything changed and he became someone that we (my husband, daughter and I) didn't know.  We were at odds about stupid things.  He wrote my husband and I a hateful letter . . . not...

    New here, unfortunately. Need your advice...

    Without any real warning or event, my 31-year old son has "stepped away" from our family. Says he has been an angry, frustrated person for the past 2 years and "turns out, it all stems from my parent's divorce" which was 20 years ago. He has been in a long-term, living-together relationship with his girlfriend of 8 years. He has a newer career in welding (2 years) and I helped him to buy his...

    My adult son resents me

    We have been there thru thick & thin for our adult son. Lately, he has been making poor decisions and this  most recent time  we didn't bail him out.  Now he is very upset with my husband and I, and stated that he wants nothing to do with us.

    Gave her my all....and it was not enough

    I think we did too much...gave too much... surrounded our worlds around them. I believe my daughter 34, just decided to have new parents, her in-laws, and just decided to cut me out. Her husband is uneducated, my daughter has a masters degree. I have a PhD. I think I intimidate him so he decided to just not like me and has criticized me from day 1. Once, we all played Scrabble and he was losing,...

    Can a mother take a child??

    I don't know where to start. I'll leave this simple. Does anyone know if it is legal for a mother to take a child out of state and drop all contact between the father and child? A little back story, we weren't married when the child was born but married two years after. I did sign the birth certificate. She left one day with the child when the child was three and I have not heard a word from her...

    Eleven Years Out . . .

    My story is toooo long to give you the whole thing, but after I divorced my son's father (my son was 18) his anger was unbelievable.  He stopped all contact with me, anytime I DID find him and try to talk to him it was painfully ugly.   I became physically and mentally ill over this.    I know the pain you all are in, and I am so sorry.   No one should ever have to feel this.    He ignored...

    Exhausting Day

    I took a PTO day off work today to meet with my therapist, Josh Coleman who specializes in parent adult child estrangement. When I arrived early 35 miles from my home, I stopped at a coffee shop to pass the time until my 11am appointment. As I sat in the waiting room, I had every intention of not crying. I had dressed, put on my makeup, I had it down. What I wanted to say, how we were going to...

    My Children Have Rejected Me - Why?

    I raised my children as a single mom, and I was always there for them.  I had to divorce their father because he had taken up crawling into bed with our daughter, and refused to stop when I told him to. He was on his way to ruining her life, and setting her for a lifetime and trauma, and I had to stop him.  Because of the divorce, I knew and felt my children were at risk, and so I chose to put...
