My almost 17 year old son knows about his father’s pornography addiction and he seems to have resentment toward me. He adores his father and I feel that his father has been very calculated and subtle in trying to destroy my relationship with my son.
I have caught my daughter throwing up in the shower several times. I don’t know how to broach this with her. I am terrified that she has bulimia.
My ex tells my almost 15 year old son that I want nothing to do with him. He has changed the way my son treats me, it’s horrible.
My daughter is 13, was bullied at school and has become extremely disengaged. She is almost always alone in her room. After weeks of working with the school on a plan to ease her back in, she agreed to try going back to school for 2.5 hours. After I dropped her off, and made sure she would be okay, and she had a teacher supporting her, she ran away from school and called me. I wasn’t angry. We talked and she knows we are there for her. But I’m broken. What are some steps that we can take to help her heal so she can return to school and other activities she used to enjoy?
My 15 year old son has had anxiety since he was 10 years old. He refused to attend school in 4th grade. What began as a few days off here and there grew to days, weeks, months, until we couldn’t get him out of the car. We tried working with the school psychologist, we even tried moving schools, but it didn’t work. He has started taking medication, which has helped a little. He spends most of his time in his room, barely interacts with the family and will not go to any family outings. I’m completely burned out.
What to do if your teenage son won’t even talk to you or his therapist? He has isolated himself from the rest of the family and has shown a lot of disrespect.
My husband the father of my children passed in 2009. I noticed some time after that my son was lying a lot. My son is now 18 and the lying hasn’t stopped. He lies about everything. The other day when I got home one of the kids had done the dishes. I asked my son who did the dishes? He said his sister did. When I said something to her about the dishes turns out he lied. He had done the dishes. I don’t understand why anyone would lie like this. I taught my children the importance of being honest and trustworthy and l have done my best to lead by example which makes this extreamly frustrating. Please help me help him fix this.
