  • THE ONLY THING YOU CAN DO IS TALK TO YOUR DAD AND EXPLAIN TO HIM WHAT YOUR MOM GOES THROUGH AND HOPE HE LISTENS INSTEAD OF THROWING A FIT.

  • Mom doesn't need help, she just needs moral support. She is doing fine. She needs to keep up the good work. Dad's trying to worm back in the house and using his son as a weapon against her. He's an emotional abuser, that's for sure. Just tell mom it's his issue and not to take on the pressure of it. Delete his voicemails. Hang up the phone when he starts his crap. Don't let him back in the house. He wants to control. Don't allow him to have power over her again by even giving him a second thought. I see why she divorced him! Funny how men get pissed and blame someone else for all their problems! lol Your mom rocks!
