Question: Dear Luise: My son is 20 years old and comes from a divorced family since he was 2. WE were so close. I remairried, wanted t family, it didn’t work out after 7 years of being remarried. I ten married again and have been married fro 9 yeras. My son doesn’t want anything to do with me at all and is disrespectful and verbally abusive when I reach out to him. J.
Answer: Dear J.: Your son is making choices that you can’t really do anything about. There is no reason whatsoever for you to have to take his abuse. He may or may not mature to the place where he sees that coming from a broken home is no excuse for bitterness, cruelty or failure. Remind him that the President of the United States came from a broken home and also that you will always love your son and keep the door open if he comes to his senses. Blessings, Luise
