Yes I would want it to happen overnight, Oh how I'd luv that. My son always loved me but he was brainwashed into hating me and is really mad at me too because I left my ex-husband. And he is certainly going to think whatever he wants, you are just reading him like a book. He also thinks he can't be wrong, impossible to be. I can deal with that though. Not sure I even know a man that doesn't think they can't be wrong. lol... But do you think stepping back and letting a teenager do what they want just because they think whatever they want to is a good idea. I've always felt like parents who do that, couldn't care much about their children. Is there something there I could be wrong about? I started having severe depression right before I moved and having thoughts of suicide and it's like not going away. So my heart breaking into doesn't help that problem very much. Sometimes when I visit my kids, I have to just avoid my son & go back home because of the way he talks to me, because I just can't handle it.I guess your right, it's going to have to be at my expense and I can only try to handle it the best I can. Your grasshopper? Ummmm I'd be more like a soft cuddly lovable adorable teddy bear but OKAY..And thank you from the bottom of my heart for the understanding and support on this. I really needed it. ps... i'm beginning to think your ID name just does not suit you!!
