I’m a mum of three and they are my world. My eldest 18 and youngest 8, I have no issues parenting them. My middle child 14 I’m failing. I’m unable to get him to do the things needed for his health. I can’t work out if it’s because I’m lazy, don’t want to argue, nag, or constantly hassle him. We’ve tried, counseling, therapists (together & separate). I’ve asked his medical team for help, advice ect but we (I )don’t follow through. I’m not great with routines and structure as I’m quite spontaneous personality. My other two do what’s required or what I ask without issue. Everyone says I’m such a great mother but I feel like a fraud. I feel I need an accountability couch living with me. I know it’s only going to get worse as he gets older, I know it’s my responsibility to teach him and get him into good habits now, I’ve tried to work on my mother guilt that he will always live with an incurable condition and I know my actions may impact his quality of life in his later years.
