My boy's and I don't aways say I love you. We tend to joke around alot in a loving way. We do things for each other and when we see that one of us
is down or up we ask whats up and lend an ear. It's not always peaches and cream. Sometimes I get so mad at them I want to scream. My comments when
I have to scold them is always " Ya know I love ya, and I don't mean to be a bitch, but........ It works for us. We know we can depend on each
Now I have a friend who kids are the same age (21-24) Now this is a sad story. She divorced her husband 7 or so years ago, and her boys lived with
her until about 3 years ago when the youngest one started getting into some trouble. She felt at the time that sending him to stay with his Dad for a
while would be a good thing.
Well, to shorten a long story, both boys ended up going to their Dad's. For a long time everything was good and all agreed it was a good choice for
the boy's to be with the father.
Then about 6 months ago, things changed drasticlly. Her boys stopped returning calls, texts, etc.. She sent them birthday cards last month and in
one of the cards, she expressed her saddness and dissapointment because of the lack of communication, and suggested that maybe someone was telling
them they should not be communicating with her.
Well to her surprise, she did not receive an answer from her children, but got a message from the boys father, saying, "FYI we try to encourage them
to keep in contact with you"
What a sad story. I do not get to see her anymore because I have moved away from the area, but I try to call or text her a couple times a week and
say to her. I love you, you are in my thoughts and prayers.
Did some research on the subject of children astranged from their mothers. It is a very common thing. Fathers too.
I'm not a thread starter, but this would be a very interesting subject to start a thread on. There is information out there. My new church even has
a group that works with parents astranged from their adult children. Just a thought
