I need to detach from my son


Does anyone have the post on how to detach from your difficult child, and live on with your life?
I have seen on here some people have share it here, I need to read it and download it and guard my heart from anymore pain.

Hi February, if you go to the Parent Emeritus section the article on detachment is pinned to the top. How old is your son? If he is an adult or even in his late teens you might find posting in the Parent Emeritus section helpful!

Agree. A lot depends on the age of your son. Is he 18 or close to it? Then the Parent Emeritus forum is likely better for you. If he is very young...it’s more complicated. But, generally speaking, even if he is young you can try to avoid the knee jerk emotional responses that often comes with these very difficult children.
