I have just come off the phone to my AS as it’s his birthday he’s 44. His hesitation answering, and his tired possibly bored tone as I wished him happy birthday was palpable.
I kept a cheery voice on .. told him I had put money in his bank so he could go out for tea with the kids or meal with partner or whatever, sent a book and a present arriving this morning. (Good old amazon prime). I didn’t tell him that I had just strained my knee, it didn’t occur to me at the time but after the call which I quickly ended after he said he had to have cup of coffee..I felt a bit flat and stupid.
My question is do you think some children are so secure in your love that your attention is bordering on boring?. You hear so much of illtreated children longing for a bit of parental attention. Somewhere in between would be nice.
Does anyone else experience this? And is there anything to be done? And it is his birthday.....
Silent treatment - son
Caught in the act - neighbours
How to say it - 'no'
