Quoting Gizmo ♥ Bry:" Honestly, I don't really know how this chick does it. I remember some really, really gross things he ... [snip!] ... her cherry and now she's obsessed"... :shock: She also isn't very social and doesn't like people. Or talk. She's an enigma.."
:shock: .........oh gawd............please don't let them reproduce.
Quoting Gizmo ♥ Bry:" That's the sad thing, we really don't want to, because its heartbreaking. No one wants to lose him, ... [snip!] ... and he's going to find that no one likes how he's been. Hard headedness runs in our family, so reasoning with him is also out. "
Oh I know you dont hun, and he is going to have to deal with that tough love its for his own benefit there is no reasoning with a person who has issues and thinks themselves right, its like fighting a losing battle which is why doing something drastic like cutting him off is the only way to make him understand that his actions are not right and have consequences. And trust me that hard hedadeness runs in my fam too lol I'm half Cherokee and half Irish so you can imagine and not to mention my dad was a sergeant in the Air Force lol so its not only in my blood its ingrained in how I was raised lol, but just because I'm hard headed doesn't mean I cant admit I'm wrong so whats his excuse? And your mom will see the benefit of this too and may even be empowered. good luck to you and your family sweetie hope all goes well.
Quoting Gizmo ♥ Bry:" You're right, and I hope my mother sees it before things get way out of hand. I just wish there was ... [snip!] ... Irish is a neat mix! My dad was also Air Force too lol, and so is my husband. Thank you very much, I hope it ends well too. "
yes hun its gonna take your mom to do it herself no one else can do it but her, and it does sadly put alot of pressure on her and they one thing you can do is be there for her for support and advice she will need it. lol it is a mix and so is yours I can say I haven't heard Mexican and Irish before lol. my hubby is Greek and Noreweigen lol. Im so proud of my dad the things he has done is amazing to say the least I always looked up to him and wanted to go into the Air Force but they wouldn't take me on account of my asthma but its ok I don't think I could leave my kids lol. your very welcome hun tell your mom from me to hang in there and be strong and to never give in and you do the same sweetie. :D
Wow - setting boundaries w/ adult kids is super hard....but I'm sure it's especially hard for your mom since she struggles with guilty feelings about the past. I hope she and your step-dad will get some help in how to handle this - not easy at all -but seems like they may need to set some boundaries (and stick to them) if they want to get out of this vicious cycle. Here's an article http://www.focusonthefamily.com/parenting/parenting_challenges/set_boundaries_with_adult_kids.aspx?p=1157699 that gives some practical steps for boundaries - perhaps it would be helpful to your fam? So sorry for all the drama you're going through!!
