Ca anybody help me, i brought up my children all bymyself for 17 years, my youngest who is 16 has gone to live with his father.  Previously he had only seen him about total of 2 months in 17 years, now he wont talk to me. i text him about monthly how are you, but he rarely replies.  do i just let him go till he wants to talk to me. can anybody help

My feeling is that I would keep texting him, tell him you love him and hope he's well, and wait for him to be ready to get back in touch. 

 

I'm so sorry that's happening.  It must be terribly difficult.   {hugs}

Give him a bit of space and let him know you love him.  My brother also left my mom to move in with our dad and doesn't speak to her.  I don't believe he does it out of spite (he loves her) but he wanted to get to know our dad and find/develop himself.  Your son will come around, I'm sure.  hug.gif
