Yes Welbeck's post does make much more sense 3nanny.

You know Smileless2012 the post was lovely something most can relate to. There seems to be another post gone up about inside the mind of an abuser I really cannot get my head around it or even comment on it.

Welbeck if only more people had that lovely perspective and those who didn't could at least change it now rather than hang on to pride

Oddly, or not, parents have been praised by court judges for such behavior, stating that not many parents would hunt down their drug addicted adult children-

Not sure that interesting article exactly describes the behaviour expressed in the OP.

I love that welbeck - it’s gentle, kind and uplifting. It reminds us all that our children are ‘on loan’ to us. Kindness and listening (sometimes keeping a ‘zip on it’ whilst doing so!) is key with adult children in my opinion. x

welbeck, thank you for sharing the lovely poem by Khalil Gibran and for raising the tone of the thread.

I haven't even looked at it 3nanny; welbeck's post was lovely and as you've posted PF has raised the tone of the threadsmile.
