Question: Dear Luise: I am tortured with wondering why my 18 year-old son has had so many problems. His emotional health is poor and he acts like he hates my “ex” and me” I stayed at home with him when he was a baby and I have loved this boy in every way I can think of. I wonder if his father sexually abused him? I have no proof. Short of asking my son such a horrifying question…and encouraging him to get counseling, I don’t know what to do. No matter what I say, I am always the evil mother who is over-reacting. What can I do? D.
Answer: Dear D.: I would suggest you go to a counselor and ask how to proceed. I think you need more guidance and direction than a website can offer. Blessings, Luise
