I am struggling to find my role in my relationship with my son who just turned 18. He is still in High School, our only child, and lives with me and my husband. There is a power struggle, and it’s driving a wedge in between us. Until the last 1-2 years, we have had a really great relationship, but now that he’s driving and turned legal age, it’s been nothing but a battle. Most of the time I just feel sad and want to cry, and today he told me a lot of things that I thought I’d never hear, about being a disappointment to us and a failure. He mentioned we could co-sign for him to find his own place to live, and we would only see him on holidays, but that we probably didn’t even want to see him for those. He said he is constantly asking himself why, what have I done to be such a failure in their eyes. He said our expectations have always been too high, that he can never achieve what we expect of him. Please pray for all of us. We need help with this situation before it gets so far that it can’t be repaired. Thank You.
