The way we raise our kids always comes back to us.
I started off wrong with my boys but saw that and corrected it early enough for them to be mentally and emotionally stable when it was time, example. My son jacob is currently working as a CNA and is not stopping there, he wants to be a dr. A mother like me could not be more proud. He grew up in rentals his whole life and was broke always but that didn’t stop him and I hope it never stops any other kid!
Now if you completely smother them, manipulate them into believing what you want them to about people especially, it will come back. Point blank….
A mother tells her new husbands mother, u will never see him or any children we have….
Tell the kids awful lies and make up stories to try to make them always see things your way and never ever in dads way, try to keep them always under your thumb….
What do you really think will happen when they grow up??? Either, one, dad smarten ups and leaves and as time goes they meet all these people they were never allowed to meet and one day actually think, hhhmmmmmm.
Or , they grow up and marry a controlling , abusive woman just like mom and you never see them or your grandchildren again…..
Either way, you are digging a bigger hole.
And somewere inside , she knows. Her parents have told her, people have left, she drinks herself a box of wine every night…. she knows…
