Question: Dear Luise: My ex-husband has turned my son against me and he has not talked to me in months. This is killing me and my question to you is, do you think he will ever come around. He is 17 years old. Thanks. M.
Answer: Dear M.: No one can read the future but it does happen. We can’t count on it but we can “intend” it and leave the door to our hearts open.
I believe Web-forum: www.wisewomenunnite.com is something you might want to look into. It was started because questions concerning adult children appear on this site so often. I know how heartbroken I was when my eldest son decided, without provocation from my point of view, that I was The Wicked Witch of the West. And he died at 52 before we had fully reconciled…but we were working on it.
We invest so much in our children and then it is so easy for others to influence them and blame us for everything including global warming. You deserve so much better. So did I. Come on over and share with us and get some much-needed support. Blessings, Luise
