My son's father was a manipulator and I always wondered how my son could be like him since they rarely spent time together. Then, in therapy, I had a revelation. For 14 years my son watched me be hustled and manipulated by various men that I brought home. I had hoped that seeing what I had been through would prompt my son to be a good man, but instead he ended up emulating all these guys. Role modeling is more important than what you tell children, so it is important to get into recovery when you children are still young/
I just returned from a week at PIVOT. This is an exciting new treatment center that helped me understand and begin to heal this codependency with my son. I will writing about this more so you can share my joy. Finding this program was divine intervention and has totally transformed my despair to hope.
