Wow, i'm so sorry to hear that! I hate when kids are involved, because it's not their fault. I don't have any children of my own so i can only imagine. I wish you the best of luck.

*hugs* I'm sorry you're going through this.
All you can do is take it one day at a time, or an hour at a time, whatever you need to do to get through this.
Welcome to PTO though, you will find lots of support and encouragement here

I know this is hard....for you, for your son, and for your husband. Breathe. While it may not get "easier" per se, you will become stronger. Take one day at a time and know we are here for you. Welcome to PTO.

The system won't let you into chat until you've been a member for two weeks AND have 25 legitimate posts. However, the information & support can be found in the forums. Here are some tips for navigating the site:

If you scroll down the
Forum Index, you'll see all the forums we have available, many of which will pertain to you & your situation.

Click on the forum title to enter the forum, then click on a thread title to read that thread.

Reply by either typing your reply into the "Quick Reply" box or click on “Go Advanced” at the bottom of the thread. To quote the post you are replying to, click on the “reply” button at the bottom of that individual post.

To create a new thread, look at the top of the thread list in any forum for a button marked "New Thread", click on that and it will open a window where you can give your thread a title and type up what you want to say or ask.
When you are done, click near the bottom where it says "Submit New Thread" and your thread will be posted.

If you ever have trouble finding a post you made, go to the upper right corner of the screen and click on your name. This will take you to your profile.
Then choose "Statistics", in that screen, click on "Find all posts by..." and you'll get a list of all of your posts/threads.

Lastly, for now, if you ever get a message saying that your post or thread has been moved, all you have to do is click on the thread title within that message and you'll go right to the new location of your thread or post.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, feel free to pm me or any other Moderator

Hello and welcome. My husband has just recently started his 4 year bid on a agg case. And these day my kids are so against me. I cant get through to them, they are young 3 and 4. So makes it harder to discipline.

We all have our rough days, some more than others, and we just have to pull strength from within to get through. But you will find tons of support ( as others have mentioned)

What part of Texas you from? Im from Houston and my husband is in Beevilee at Garza west
