I was working as a waitress making two dollars an hour sometimes for 16 hours a day. I got tips and they were pretty good. We were better off financially than we ever had been. I feel like I put money before their safety. But they never told me. My oldest son finally confessed to me in his late teens. By then it was too late to do counseling or anything they were already on their path to destruction.
I had just started seeing a new doctor and was very medicated. I slept about 16 hours a day. I just didn’t have the energy to discipline them the way I should have. I also could never under
I also could never understand why they made such bad decisions for their lives. I love them unconditionally but I did try to point out to them that they were sowing seeds that they would later regret (which they did).
I brought them up in the church and we prayed and read the bible every night and prayed in the morning. It says in the bible if you train a child in the way he should go he will not stray from it when he is old. But just how old do they have to be??
I feel like they are standing on the railroad tracks and no matter how many times I warn them about the train coming they just stay on those tracks. I know the trains coming but they don’t seem to get it. Maybe with age…?
