Can we all have a vent together? Who else has little or no support from family? Or who gets the opposite - judgement and lack of understanding.
I get so p*ssed of with my mother. She sees the kids a few times a year, then has the gall to give me the third degree with every choice I make - then - get this - she whines to my older brother and gets him to call me up and "talk to me".
Its destroying the relationship with my brother, I know that she has him convinced she is right so he sides with her. She is controlling and manipulative. As long as you do what she says (or in thier case at least pretend to - where as I wont pretend either) then she is ok.
THe latest is the lectures about us going to Tassie in Oct/Nov/Dec - what about the boys education/stability etc....well DUH they are homeschooled and we will rent a house!
Why dont I let J have more freedom (scout camp) umm sleeping in tents in a forest near water holes. No adults in the tents. NO!! He takes off when upset and doesnt stop! He is going from 6am till 10pm not overnight, thats enough since its only his fifth week in scouts!! He's 13 diagnosis autism.
Join me and make me feel not so alone with a useless grandma and grandpa!
