So after all the worries about unwanted (and it was) contact and being NEET but enrolling at college things are looking up. It's not easy and he still needs an awful lot of scaffolding and support but half term is giving me the chance to do that.
It's tricky getting that balance and hard to be pulled both ways and worry I'm not doing anything right but I've come to realise I need to parent him, 18 or not!
He is letting me!!! He's allowing me to support, he's coming for help (and food) and is slowly building more resilience.
Let's hope it continues. We both need that x
Aww you will always be mum and they'll always need mums for some reason well into adulthood xReplyDelete
Yes I'm realising that. Thank you xDelete
I'm so glad things have settled down and that your boy is asking for support when he needs it. That's what mums are for! Thanks so much for sharing with #Blogstravaganza xxReplyDelete
