How do I fix a marriage after cheating??
My husband of 5 years has cheated on me. I'm heartbroken. Can I fix our marriage?? Is there hope for us?? Will things get better? Please help
Am I over reacting? Am I the one in the wrong no him
Ok I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years now and he denied cheating on me but everything points to the opposite he's gone to spend the night with his baby moma and her kids in a hotel he rated me put to her when I called the cops on her for her vandalizing my car he would defend her when I would bring thing up about her and he has a video of her playing with her self am I wrong for being mad?
We both have insecurities and trust issues due to past relationships... So, there's the back and forth accusations, yelling, name calling, etc. We are both extremely jealous and have no communication skills. We love each other but sometimes Love isn't enough to make someone understand that you aren't going to hurt them. How can we help each other overcome these issues?
Idk what to do
My boyfriend and I have been fighting because he found some old messages that I had when we started going out, the messages are not bad the conversations where just like hi and bye kind of thing but because I told him I wasn't talking to anyone he's mad but da whole time he was still hanging out with his baby momma behind my back and he would delete all his messages to her so I wouldn't see them
Lost and confused at a crossroads
My boyfriend and I have been together for seven years now. We have had a very tumultuous relationship both of us have hurt each other very much on each parts. But he’s done a lot more wrong it has no accountability. But my question is how do you handle it because anytime I try to talk to him about anything he automatically yells at me, deflects, accuse me of cheating. How do you go about handling
How can I get my teen to confide in me
I've been trying to get my son to confide in me about why he is feeling so depressed. He is 15 years old and a very good teen but have no idea why he is so withdrawn and quiet. Please help me I cant bear to see him like this
What do I do?
I'm not sure what to do. Recently separated mom with 2 young girls and pregnant with my 3rd.
I took my son's Ipad away because I'm at my wit's end with him.
He is so addicted and doesn’t want to do anything else. Can anyone tell me whether I did the right thing or am I being too harsh?
It's 3 y I divorced and we have shared custody of 2 lovely kids. Any advice on how to make them understand that divorced parents is ok?
What should I do?
My son is acting out in school and giving people the middle finger and running around and hitting when he is restrained and he also has speech apraxia and may have ADHD
She (15 y/o) came into my office today with dark circles under her eyes speaking of exhaustion and communication failings. I assessed her health and mood and confirmed that she was in the process of scheduling an appointment with her primary care doctor. I asked all the pertinent questions about diet, exercise, and sleep. She told me she can feel the "eggshells" in the house. She shared her aggravation wtih knowing something is going on by noticing how her mom's emotions are bleeding all over everything but mom isn't directly talking about what is peripherally washing over the home.//collateral damage of sorts. She's avoiding the elephant. Does the teen need more information? Perhaps she needed less info historically and is now being cut off from the details, which could be totally justified.. Mom has previously conditioned their relationship during the divorce as her confidante, her best friend, rather than protecting her from the details and maintaing some of the informational hierarchy in the home. Mom is now editing herself and leaving her daughter dangling there with the emotion, but not the details... Mom now deals with real life adult junk herself and attempts to shield her daughter.
Add to myWE:
HEY PARENTS!! YOUR KIDS ARE SMART, THEY KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON AND WHEN AN ESTABLISHED DYNAMIC IN THE HOME CHANGES, THEY CAN TELL. ..THIS STARTS AS YOUNG AS 7 YEARS OLD.
If this is something you're struggling with, you're not alone. I'm challenged by this as well in my own divorced home with my very own tween and I have a relatively functional relationshp with the co-parent. This is a common issue, let's talk about it if you need to!
