My son who is 44 years old and single at the moment - he and his long term girlfriend finished 3 years ago, had a mental issue 2 years ago which involved me in supporting him emotionally and financially for a long time. However he said about 18 months ago after I had refurbished his house as well as emotionally supported him that he didn’t need our input any more and he was quite able to manage we thought fine. However he hasn’t been in touch with me despite my texts etc which he has ignored and now I hear from his sister that the reason he hasn’t been in touch is because we go away too much!! I cannot believe that he expects us to be there waiting for him. At 44 years of age I think it is a cheek and about time he realised we have a life too but he seems to think only of himself and nothing about us. What do you other parents think?
Son's fiancee hates us - we're going to family therapy
My dilemma is that she's a slob - how to discuss with her?
A level of gravitas and decorum has been lost - don't think she's a naive player
