That just broke my heart. I realize that this doesn’t offer total peace for you at the moment BUT …..what are WE doing wrong. Remember, it takes a village to raise a child just too bad the village does not accept that role anymore. They are suffering in silence like you. Because we no longer have that “universal front” in either our family and within our community. There’s so much “stuff” out there to ruin our kids, emotionally, physically and it’s a smorgasbord of wrong doing! It’s proven that all kids yearn for guidance and discipline but when parents are collectively out there flaling for help and some answers. It is partially our fault that these spoiled brates were created by our lack of discipline early on because we WANT to be their friends instead of playing their role as parents. Since this situation is not uncommon (at all) we must start all over beginning with focus and support groups at school, church etc. Youre genuinely disgusted guilty(for whatever reason), hurt, lost and alone. Take that energy today and begin to spearhead a group to share, support etc. remember that when feeling bad turn your attention on helping others and life and kids ain’t so intolerable 🙂
I’ll sign up for your group! Good luck and my prayers are said for you today.
