Or Maybe this should be “The Call I Didn’t Want To Make But Had To“?
Please this is my life, my shoes that I am walking and we all do parenting different…but all have the same outcome – we want our kids to be happy n safe. If you feel like you would do things differently then I accept that, but I am here in my life living with my kids….
Teenager Hormones are not easy to deal with, especially when you have five males in one household – gosh is the testosterone huge in our Motorhome! I am surely outnumbered in many ways…
The last three weeks have been very challenging to say the least and the other day things spun out of control – way out of what I would ever think could happen.
If I could do anything differently it would be to have more control over my thoughts…
The Call I Made And Would Do Again If I Had To….
I made a call, and people came to help. I didn’t want to make the call, and I was crying as I spoke….and shaking.
But What Could We Do?
It helped calm the situation down for the time they were there, but it hasn’t changed our situation within our family. So we are seek help from other sources….
I keep turning around in circles and not knowing what to do, or where to go for help.
Why in Australia is there not enough help for our teenagers?
For the teenagers who can’t express them self in a safe way?
And why as parents do we feel so very guilty for asking for help from outsiders?
I don’t get why I feel guilty for writing this, but I need to get it out of my head, and I need to sort through feelings so I can understand what to do next.
Even starting to look through Forums (I am not into Forums…they are not my thing- yeah even though I set one up for New Life on the Road!) for suggestions on what books to read regard raising teenage sons.
Today was the first day in a very long time where our home felt at ease, and I could relax. SO I grabbed a girly book and I sat down to read. It was so good for the soul….
And maybe that is something I am lacking – finding time for myself?
Or maybe my parenting skills are lacking…but then again I do have other sons who are really happy…so I do not know anymore.
Life is good – really good – when our household is happy. They are the times I live for. I only hope there is more of those days ahead.
This weekend I am escaping – going to see family that I haven’t seen in a very long time, and only taking one of my boys. I really need time out – and I think that it will be good for all of us.
And one of our boys is going to stay with other family members for a change of scenery.
David will home alone (with two or three of our boys – depends on how many I take with me!!) for the weekend.
He also needs the break – he has to deal with my heart ache, and with his boys heart aches….so a weekend will be good for him.
Do you know how small a Motorhome becomes when there is not harmony within? Its smaller than a toilet block at a shopping centre!
So this weekend coming up I will be offline.
And I will be searching for services in the area. To help us all.
Its the only thing I have.
It has to be enough.
