I’m so sorry to read about this situation with your son and his father. It sounds like you’ve worked very hard to cope with triggering behaviour whilst setting firm boundaries within the home.
You mentioned overcompensating for years, and I can imagine how difficult it must be to carry all this without the support of your son's father. Do you have any support people in your life that you can lean on during times like these?
Thank you for opening up with us about your feelings and concerns. I’ve got a few resources and support options that may help you, which I’ll share below:
1. We offer a free one-on-one parenting support service. You can read about it and book it if interested here.
2. Relationships Australia is a national support service that provides Family Relationship Services, counselling and much more. You can give them a call on 1300 364 277.
I hope those few suggestions are helpful, and feel free to let us know what you think.
I’m going to send you an email to chat about some of the other concerns you’ve expressed here, so keep an eye out for that when you have time.
Take care and chat soon.
It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
