My son is 20 years old. It's not been easy, his post-teens and up. Didn't help my being an enabler and co-dependent staying in a love-less marriage over 20+ years, of which my X preferred his bottle over me and OUR son. Six months ago my son decided to come home, and worked towards improving his life which wasn't going no where. OMG - My JOY was like Christmas Day when he came home to stay, I was in AWE!
However, his two steps forward back slided into 2 steps backwards, and so he slided back into the choice of old friends, drinking and pot smoking which slowly increased over time. He wouldn't follow through with getting medical help and when I asked him to take a cup test for me because on that particular day he appeared very pot stone after work, he refused. He moved out today, "Tough Love", is tougher on me than him. He's moving back with his dad, and I wrote his dad a tough letter asking him to step up to the plate. The rest for me will be spent in prayer, hoping and believing he will break through. I did what I could, offered what I could, he refused it, therefore I can't not keep him home to pretend - TOUGH LOVE is my route, and it doesn't mean I love my boy any less, and yes it hurts just the same. What about you, or someone you know what is the outcome for their kids in choosing to keep them home or kick them out and hope the self destruction will come to an end...what ever it plays out to be?
