So dh has been depressed lately, and he doesn't want to talk about it. Though he says he feels old beyond his years (he is almost 29) and he feels like he always fights with his kids (they are 11 and 12) and they don't listen to or respect him and he feels like a failure. But yet he won't say much more than that.
Well now he has become distant and he has changed and is basically letting the kids do whatever it is they feel like. They live with us full time so I know. For 2 weeks now, they don't do homework hardly ever, watch Tv all afternoon, the 12 y/o sd is hanging out with girls that are 17 and 18 and going who knows where, basically kinda letting the kids raise themselves. Now I am worried, and I don't know what to do. I am looking for advice. I am worried about him, also VERY worried about the kids as well.
Any thoughts or suggestions on what I can do?
