I have an adult child, my son, who is almost 30. He has always acted as if he hates me and I have asked him why but he cannot give me a reason. His father was a molester that eventually went to jail. I kept my son away from him but my son is angry with me, not his father, because he grew up without a dad. (He knows what his father did because his half sisters told him. I never said anything negative about his father to him.) Everything is always my fault! Not only has he cut me out of his life, he also cut off his grandparents and other family members. As a single mom, I did the best I could to provide and nurture him. (I went to college at night and worked when I could.) I am ready to give up and just stay out of his life. I figure whenever he is ready, he will make contact. But, it hurts that my only child doesn't want to have anything to do with me or my other family members. Even a reason why would be helpful. Any ideas?
