Tired of jumping through hoops!
I need help on how to let go of my adult daughter who has made it her mission to make me jump through hoops for the past 10 years. I am so tired and worn down and refuse to do it anymore.
Had hoped he was doing OK. Now he's demanding financial support, while maintaining 'no contact', but also threatening to return home. How does that work??
I hope this is a private message, as it appears to be. I just wanted to ask if Kay's psychosis (if that's what it is) is drug induced or an actual mental illness? I know when my son was using meth he had such crazy paranoid delusions that it was truly terrifying and heartbreaking to watch. The good news is that once he stopped using all that largely went away.
Me - married, 59. Husband 60, soulmate since age 19.
Easy child 26 (who my son would call the 'Golden Child') is like a sunshiny day to all who know them.
Difficult child son 24, currently cut us off after we called the police to remove him for the second time. Oppositional to his father since age 2. Intelligent and manipulative, possibly Aspie type, likes to threaten suicide and smash nearby objects to make a scene.
I’m so sorry you have been dealing with this for so long. :(
Hi! I’m a Nana, too. Is there a place for grandmothers who don’t have custody but just love and watch their grandchildren?

We are going to Mt. Carmel Natl Park, Tel Megiddo, Tzipori National Park; Mt. Arbel, Ein Gedi, En Avdat, and City of David.
I have 17 y.o. who self medicates with weed, is openly defiant of house rules, and other rules that he doesn't agree with.
JMom, I notice a reference to a book you've written but couldn't find the post where the name of it was mentioned. What is the title?
Adult child living on disability, irresponsible in roles of mother, money management, making adult decisions, bent on breaking rules.
Daughter refuses to be an adult and manipulates me, so she can get her own way. Bruised heart at the moment.
