I'm tired and done. I just can't keep doing this anymore!
I have 7 children and love them and have done the best that I can to raise them right.
When everyone was little it was awesome and I always wanted a large family. I had begged my parents to have more children but my mom had had her tubes tied when I was born. My oldest was born by my first husband and because of our situation when we divorced he took custody and I visited. So, basically he raised her. Then I married again and we had 6 children together. The last one was a big surprise. But, everything was going so well. My 18 yr old is already on her own and had my first grandchild and I just consider this a hiccup in her life because she has really risen to the occasion. She's held down the same job for 2 years and takes care of her own child. She's doing great and going to start going to college P/T. But my 16 yr old and 15 yr olds are driving me quickly to the edge of sanity.
It's gotten so bad with my 16 yr old that I don't even want to be her mother anymore. And my 15 yr old is on her side so things aren't going well there either.
I have a social worker coming over tomorrow to talk about what is going on. She hasn't lived in my house for almost a month and has fallen into truancy which the school filed today when she didn't show for the second appointment that they were going to give her anohter chance to straighten up. In our state you can't drop out untill 17 and truancy charges fall on the child after the age of 13.
Has anyone felt this way? That you just can't do it anymore? I need help.This is not like me to give up my child. Everyone who knows me says that I am a wonderful mom and loving and caring. So, how can I just give up on my child like this? How could we get to this point. My ex husband and I are convinced that she is a Sociopath or something.
