    Parents do tend to forget what it was like. My son doesn't do a tenth of what I got up to when i was a teenager. But if he did, I'd remember. Life is short.

    I'd understand if they were overprotective, but I know parents who I honestly think just hate their kid.

    Actually, I have come across a lot of parents who MUST hate their kid the way they treat them. It's hard to comprehend.

    I know, but I'm not talking about emotional abuse...Actually I am. One of my close friends recently called me in tears, he was having an argument with his mum about getting a job, so she said to him 'well, if you think you're such an adult, prepare yourself. I may have cancer and when I die it's going to be your responsibility to take care of the family.'

    Now that is a very harsh blow!!!

    My son actually brought up the subject of getting a little job when he turns 15. Don't know about that. I don't really want my son working. I want him doing his schoolwork, and other than that playing basketball and enjoying his youth. Grow up and the responsibility hits you soon enough!

    Oh no. She wanted him to get a job. He wanted to go back to school to finish his education.

    She doesn't have cancer btw. The doctors virtually told her she's a whiney baby. She's very obese and she told them she thought she had cancer in her leg 'because it hurt.' Did I mention she makes up a lot of stories about her children having disappearing twins and triplets at birth? Let's just not go there.

    TBH she sounds like a blight on society.
    If her son turns out a great person, then it will be without her help, I think. Sigh.

    He's a good kid. He suffers from ADHD and Bipolar, the only time I've ever seen him be bad was when she decided to try natural therapies. Yeah...He's on a five year good behaviour bond because he ended up stealing stuff from someone's house. She tells him she has twenty three siblings she's no longer in contact with...She's the kind of person who makes me wish there was some kind of screening test before she was allowed to breed. had

    I have one son who hangs out with the most dead beat looking young men, many have been in trouble with the law. To look at them you would probably want to cross to the other side of the road.
    They have hearts of gold. I like most of them so very much.

    When my kids were small, DOCS made me a safe house for troubled teenagers that did not need foster care but housing while they were going through the court system. They were very careful who they placed with me. I took Scott in, shoplifting charge. It was winter. He told me a mate of his was ill, sleeping in his car. I went and got him, nursed him. He left when he was well. About 6 months later, I was ill. I staggered down to the youth community support scheme drop in place hoping to find one of the girls I had met there. I wanted to offer her money to come home with me, look after my 2 young sons while I could sleep. None were there but this rough mate was. He took me aside, said he would come. Not only did he look after the kids he did some housework and cooked some dinner for us (my hubby was away) He would take no money and I have never seen him again.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    That's a very very heartwarming story Di
