Hello fellow Moms!

I joined because I am now in the "I feel like the worst Mom in world" club and need advice/connections with other Moms who have been there/done that! 

A little background - I have raised my two daughters as a single parent since their father committed suicide when they were 5 and 7 yrs old.  I am also active duty military (23 yrs).

 I have a 20 yr old who would be any Mom's perfect daughter...finishing her freshman year in college next week, kind, respectful, thoughtful, etc.  Conversly, my 18 yr old, a senior is high school, is aggressive, entitled, getting in trouble at school, and hanging around with the "wrong" crowd...but at least does well in school (grade wise) and is enrolled in college next fall.  Both will attend college away from home.

I have always treated both equally but for the life of me I can't understand why my youngest has so much anger towards me and wants to spend the least amount possible at home.  Since I didn't have to deal with this sort of behavior with my oldest...I'm wondering where I went wrong...I'm hoping a rebellious 18yr old normal...

Hi everyone:) I have 2 daughters ages 38 and 33, and 3 step children ages 34,39, 42. I've been married to my second husband for 13 yrs. now and together we have 15 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. I'm retired and disabled due to a back injury so I don't get out much. It's nice to meet new people.

Thank You for sharing.

Yes' I am new here. I am so glad I am here. I just finished reading your story. and I did not want to say much about my own children. out of fear you would not understand.  I will share more about my situation. My situation is not pretty either..  I had to completely disappear out of my childrens lives because they are so abusive.

They nearly destroyed me, and have destroyed my home.

I am so ashame of my children what they  have become. Although I love them dearly. My heart is broken and wounded so badly, that I had to do what I had to do, to maintain my integritiy, and my sanity.  It is now five years, and I am starting to get back on my feet.

I will share more. and the steps I had to take.

Thank You for Sharing,

 

I too, am new to this site. I have joined to connect with other mothers, who have been experiencing Parent Abuse, which is the abuse of Children towards their parents.  Yes, it is very real, yet society, does not want to accept this is happening, and do not want to talk about it.  So, I have been all to myself, trying to sort it all out.  So I did what I had to do, to keep my sanity and integrity, by disappearing out of their lives.  I still keep up with what they are doing. But I am not receving the hostilities as and abuses.

I love my children. and I needed to separate myself, from them. By doing this, I have maintain my sense of self respect, and living a life in peace, knowing I am not the one who is responsible for the dysfunctional attitude and behaviour.  They are the selfish ones. I am observing them from a distance, and they still continue with their dysfunctional lifestle.  I left them, becuase they always blamed me for all of their problems. And as a I have left them, discovered, it is not me at all. It is all about them, Me, Me, they are selfish to the core of hell!

They have no self respect, and do not respect one anyone! I have a clear conscience, as I look at myself, what could I have done different.  and the reality is none.  They are what they are becuase of outside social pressures, and brainwashing, and or indoctrination from the public schools, and advertising, tv, etc.. their peer pressure.

I pray for them, that one day they will wake up before it is too late.

By disapearing out of their lives, I have found peace, stability and security and for my own personal safety.

Yes, they are that violent children, they have held me at knifepoint on two occasion, burned me with a hot cookstove, one held a 22 rifle in my face, one has assaulted me and charged, and yes they have literally destroyed my home and nearly destroyed me... Their father has a been influence on this matter.

This is just a little bit of my story.

Hi Marie, my name is Linda. I can connect with you experiences all too well. My heart goes out to you in so many ways. Parent abuse is all to true and it not recognised as often as it should be. 

I see from you profile that we also have some other things in common. If your comfortable with it you can request me as a friend.
