    Hello I’m new to this forum page…

    im 23 and mum to 2 boys aged nearly 6😭 and 3! I’m still at home with my parents desperate to move out and have my own home with my boys… I feel like I’m not the parent, my boys don’t listen to me because I say no and everyone else says yes, I’ve had discussions with my family about asking me first but it’s like nobody is bothered about what I think because they’d rather just give in to everything they say and want… I feel lost and so lonely because all I want is for my boys to listen to me and understand I’m the mum and they’re my children not my parents or sisters children… I live with my mum and dad, sister 21 sister 14 and brother 19 so I get that it’s confusing for them I’m at a HUGE loss and I just need to let it all out!

    Hi Emily.

    Do you currently work? I know it must be frustrating for you at the moment with Christmas and all that. Try to take them out of the house and talk to them how you feel perhaps they would listen better in a neutral environment. See the positives you have all your family around you who love you and want to take care of you, I have had to move back into my dads living in a cold front room recently divorced and i only get to see my 3 year old every 2 weeks for a weekend, i can barley get up in the morning, because before i had a purpose now i just feel lost, so just remember you have your family and when the time is right you will make it work.


    kind regards
