  • You are responcible for you. Not how your mother treats you, or how you children turn out. You are only responcible for the decisions you make. Love yourself- know that you are doing your best, let that be enough and you will never be dissapointed. Don't let em drag you down.

  • The relationship with mother is a tough one. And I can relate. I agree with stenhouse-that u have to be strong and keep your head up. Easier said than done, but do it. If the children are old enough to know the truth, then the truth will prevail. If your mother is wrong, she will get her judgement back. Are you responsible for your children or is your mother responsible? If you are responsible for the children then your mother has too much input. If your mother is responsible for the children, then you forfeit control and she can say whatever she wants by default. Flip the script...become a responsible person with or without the drama. I wish you well.

  • Oh much pain they have caused you. First, my mom was cruel. She was also disturbed. She turned my family against me. Someone said," Truth does prevail!!" Now all my sisters talk to me & no one has anything to do with her. You be yourself! You keep loving your kids. Tell them you acknowledge their feeling & want them to know you'll be here if they ever need you. Maybe its time to disconnet from your mom for awhile. If she doesn't live with you, when she comes over meet her at the door & tell her you were just leaving. Don't take her calls or make them brief. Don't give her any information about you or your children. Get out of the house & find some place to go. Take up a class about something you've always wanted to learn. Start a club for Teen Mom's or doing crafts. Go learn scrapbooking. You can stay at the shop for hours & let everyone take care of themselves, including you! Time 4 u to get some joy! Plz Text me!

  • I just saw the ages of your children. Hard to get out of the house alone isn't it? Is there any way you can do some babysitting swapping with others? Maybe finding a place you can take your children and still have some you time...As far as your son goes, I'm sure he heard that comment from his grandma. He's too young to come up with that. It's an adult comment if ever I heard one! You need some friend that can rally around you instead of mom. I say this because you need to be encouraged right now. You need some love and hope. Do you go to church? Not trying to get too personal, just that they have a lot of programs for the youth of all ages. Giving you some time for you...Just a thought... I hope you will remember, trust your own instincts. You have a great mind and a beautiful smile! No one can take it away from you unless you choose to let them win! Here if you need support!
