Hello I'm gordi I have 3 children my eldest 2 are in Melbourne with there own lives and families and my youngest son is 13 & 1/2, year 8 this year and last has been very hard for everything and everyone. I'm a single mum living in regional Victoria. My son has hit the teens and hormonal physical and mental changes are hard and tiring. Am glad I'm not alone it seems every 3rd post is about school refusal or anxiety/depressed teens as my son is going thru a rough time too. I love when he thinks he has become a man still in a boys mentality and he knows everything and I'm just old and stupid lol. We have a very close r'ship which sadly has been coming to an end of those fun things we used to do together when he was my boy. He makes me laugh when he stumbles on words and mispronounces them. E.g carbondehydrates lol. And spickeled de me! Despicable me lol. And knows every atom and partial known to man lol. What a great forum this is its better then quora no offence to quora but it's very American and English. 🤔😍😀

Hi there I'm gordi just signed up with reach out. As I was reading thru your information you mentioned big brother program. What. Do they do as I'm a single mum with teenage son refusing school won't do home schooling has hormonal attitude nos becoming lazy infact my story is very very similar to the lady you replied to. He has anxiety and has had a cpl of bouts of showing signs of depression of which he said that it's school that makes him depressed. Anyways big brother program is maybe what my boy needs he hasn't had much of a relationship with him dad it was very hostile violent and toxic. I've noticed how much my son gets very close with the cpl male friends that I have I see his heart craving for male/father figure closeness and male bonding so I'm wondering if you would be kind enough to give me more information or there details. 😁 @WhaeaM wrote: Hi Nikkita .. gosh you've got a lot going on. God bless you. I am wondering if you have thought of the big brother programme? I'm not sure how it works but I am sure there are adult males who will fulfill the role in a small way of having a male influence in your boys life. It might help. I'm sorry I don't have any contact details but if you google I am sure something will come up. You are a brave Mama.. never stop telling your boy you love him and for every situation look at the glass half full, not half empty approach. Cheers.
