Inconsiderate Adult Children
I love my children, ages 35 and 27, and I have always done things to help them out, and when they ask, my answer is usually, "Yes." Problem is that they only seem to show caring or concern when they want something. Mom, can you take care of the kids? Mom or dad, can you come help me? I have a flat tire. etc. etc. On New Years Eve or New Years Day neither son or daughter-in-law called or emailed to say Happy New Year - even though my husband in halfway around the world on business, and I am alone. My daughter, is mentally handicapped and she lives in our home. Often, as of late she is inconsiderate and very selfish, kind of like she is going through a very delayed adolescence. All of this causes feelings of sadness and I feel so alone. Perhaps my expectations are too high. Sometimes I just want to run away from home, but I have no place to go.
