Yesterday during Group Therapy, we read a Facebook message from a Rock-A-Holic named Chris who was having a problem that happens in almost every family.
Chris and his brother are both in their 20’s and living on their own. The problem they are having is that their mom constantly worries that they are upset with her if they don’t talk to her every few days. She also says that she wishes that she could afford a big house for them to all live in.
What Chris wanted to know was how to tell his mom to go enjoy her life without needing her kids around constantly.
This is a very common problem and the empty nest syndrome is a difficult thing to go through but by the sound of his message, she doesn’t have a husband or boyfriend there to help her through this tough time.
Around the time the kids leave, women not only have to deal with that but they are also possibly dealing with menopause so it’s up to the husband/boyfriend to be there for their lady to get through this.
The best thing I ever did was separate my wife and son because we have all since become really close but I helped my wife out with the process.
One Rock-A-Holic called in and said that he should help her find group activates with women her own age so she can bond and have fun with them. That is an excellent idea as well; what ever happened to women forming groups to help and support their fellow women?
As much as I understand how much people who moved for the first time appreciate their new found freedom, Chris has to know that even with a text here or there would mean the world to his mom.
