i am a single mom of 5 children..ages 18..14..13..4..3..
this is hard but i want to be honest. i am not the best mom..money is tight. i struggle day to day but i do have a roof over the kids head,,food in their stomach and i do know how to ask for help when needed. the toughest part is my boys the 14 and 13 year old have been staying with my parents..they say they don't want to come home,, my parents live right near a park and they also have my brother and his wife living with them with their 3 boys and on weekends my brothers other son from a previous girlfriend. where i live their isn't any kids for them to play with and the closet park is 3 miles away. i do not abuse them and everytime i tell the boys to come home my mother says they can't or don't want to..i think she has them convinced they can't come home. i don't know what to do..i cry all the time i miss them..i am always at my parents house so i can see my sons..please don't bash me..just advice please.
