    Hi all,

    I’ve not been on here for a while but today I felt really low and had to reach out..I’m a single mum of three..my eldest is 18..now I’ve had my fair share of serious problems with him a few years back but I got him and our family help and support and he seemed to have turned a corner..however since he has turned 18 he seems to be adamant to do whatever he wants and conveys I don’t have the right to tell him what to do and not do and that his life is none of my business (I don’t dictate to him at all only advice and discuss consequences to choices).. today he has verbally abused me calling me all the names under the sun telling me I’m a shut parent failure lazy (my youngest is 3 so not working atm) amongst other degrading insults and has then said ‘it’s no wonder I (him) smoke weed all the time it’s because of you and this shit life with you (me)!’..He preceded to threatening to smash up the house report me to social services for being a shit parent told me to go take my pills (I’ve suffered panic disorder and depression in the past) . He has been skiving off college , lying to his p/t job and not turning up for shifts and staying out til 5am most weekends leaving the house late at night during the week..his father is on and off with contact with him and I just feel broken and I don’t know what to do..how do I handle this ? The abuse is the same as I was getting from his dad during and for many years after the relationship..please any advice or support would be much appreciated and apologies for the long vent xxx
