I think I have been posting about this before.....not sure..... Me and my mom has this terrible dynamics where I keep trying to explain behaviour of my son to confirm his diagnosis of Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD).....while she keeps on telling me it"s just him being manipulative! So this morning she just said it straight out that she will never believe he has this illness! They stay 2 days drive from us, so we talk everyday on the phone.....but we are going to visit in a weeks time....staying in our own house(will never survive staying with them). She got stuck with the normal MRI saying if the neuro couldnt find anything wrong...there is nothing wrong with him! According to her he is just a very clever, manipulative, spoiled child that is selfish and throws tantrums everytime things doesnt go his way!!!!agh!!!! Oh and VERY rude with no respect for others....oh and a drama queen, and, and and! He already said he doesnt want to go and visit her because she is rude to him....she says she is not...he just knows that he cant get away with his nonsense with her! It brakes my heart because I am the model child, phoning her every day, supporting her, listening to all her moans, sending gifts and flowers.....but when I need support she critisizes me: Telling me that I am trying to be a "to good parent".....or contradicting herself saying I need to give more attention to them...exct. I really dont know how to just "switch of" from her remarks and opinions....I dont know how to grow a thick skin! Any suggestions?
