My son believes everything his father tells him

My son believes everything his father tells him

Your article on The Silent Treatment, narcissistic emotional abuse was absolutely so helpful to me. It confirmed to a “T” the husband I’m married to. I have managed to escape and busy with proceeding with a divorce.

The sad part is my husband is using our son (he is 16 years old, turning 17 in July) as a pawn / tool and emotionally abusing him so against me as his mother for his own benefit and gain. My husband includes our son in all our adult talk. He puts so much pressure on our son.

As a result my son is disrespectful, rude and cold towards me. My son believes everything his father tells him about me. My husband runs me down in front of our son & behind my back making me out as a worthless, hopeless and useless human being.

I’m finding it enormously hard to cope, manage and deal with my son. Any advice would be much appreciated.

  1. I’ve had similar troubles at times with my middle child, although it turned out it was from a whole lifetime (for her) of my husband training her to be disrespectful and disobedient and to see me as a mess and him as e poor put upon husband. Now that he shredded our family over time I trust that Hod will help her see things clearly. It’s only been a year and a half since he first walked out and it’s already clear to her in some ways in some aspects of life and divorce. I know she and I have a lifetime journey in front of us. But we’ll get there. I’ve had to put up some boundaries with her that I’d not have but it’s actually for the best as it turns out. She doesn’t have to see or cope with my healing or my emotions at all and sometimes it will lead to misunderstanding but it will give her room to live her life and learn her own lessons. She’s an amazing person in many ways. God is with us an dhelping.
