Kimuend, First Thank you for your prayers and thoughts, and words of advice, it may seem small, but it does help. I went through that stage when he was 16, I will pray for you too, concerning your daughter, they do appreciate you again, they do. I kept saying to myself, at that time, when I was down, when he didn’t seem to need me anymore, “It’s only natural, if he never breaks away, and clings to you like when he was five, it wouldn’t be normal”..I will pray for you, and by the way I have three children too…from 7, 10, and 18, I wish you all the best,,,way over in England, and know you made a friend in the U.S.A. Keep in touch…Tara
To KImuend, he wanted to go to college too, closer to her, but he accepted the fact that he will have to go in the area, if he doesn’t want to pay for it. Because my husband’s job, and college tuition reimbursement. So.. I thought we did a good job, and thank you, but sometimes you wonder, where did I go wrong, but I know he is a sweet, kind, soul, and he serves others, but in this case, he could sell his soul, and not know it…. thanks to both of you again.

Thank you both for your replies and taking the time to do so. Scaring the crap out of me is right. I guess I didn’t see the signs, but they have been slowly taking over as parents, to the point of yelling at him, while I was on the phone with him, and trying to paint us, “as not good for him”, by buying him things, where as we want him to purchase his own extras…I’m sick over it. I appreciate both your responses. I think anonymous has a wise head on her shoulders, and I fear for the mental impact and illusion this is playing on him. It’s almost like watching your child joining a cult, and you can’t stop them. I hope and pray our parenting through all these years, will weigh heavier in his thoughts, then purchased items and attactive girlfriends. I pray. I don’t believe their interested in his income, but more that they can find someone they can mold to be just right for their daughter. Like a Stepford boyfriend….I will let you know how it turns out, and thank you both for taking the time. I’m very upset inside about it….
