I always thought my 18 ds was so brilliant when he was little and really thought he would grow up to be something big and he ended up hating school, and is really upsetting me with the sad choices he is making. Is it normal for me to feel so let down now that he is grown? I watched a lot of old home movies today, and it just makes me sad, or is he just trying to find himself and will get there eventually???Answer Question

I thought I was going to die with my son, but with a good father he turn out alright. 30 yrs old in the rev. 5 yrs navy, 4 yrs LA NG, 14 mos. in Iraq, now he is AG. Gra. Dec 19, 2008 Cum Laude in BA filming from UNO. On the job market, hopefully marries good young lady catholic maybe. Hang in there it all work out. If he make a decision, and it go wrong. Stand by him, and talk talk talk help in out, but you have to let him know you can't be there all time, and helping out making the right choice.

I think we as parents see the great potential in our children and want the very best for them.. It is heart breaking when our children do not realize their potential or even think of their future, there kids and think about NOW

I completely agree. My dd is now 22. She was so smart in school and had so much potential to do whatever she wanted to do but here she sits at home with no job, no plan, and we're paying for her every need. It just breaks our hearts. She doesn't even act like she wants to do anything but sit around. It's really hard.
