Destiny ???

What can you say when you know your child is making a BIG mistake in their life ?

Do you tell them what you REALLY think, or do you just sit idly by and let it happen ?

Let me know....

I think you should discuss it with him but he will probably do his own thing and have to learn the hard way. I give my kids advice and tell them how I feel. But, lol they don't usually listen. Then they come back and tell how they wish the did. Sorry I haven't visited in a long time. I have been so busy and so far behind. I hope Ste is ok?

You gotta give your opinion, but of course they have to make their own choices!!

Sorry, I just told Ste to do what he thought was best for him. That still does not stopme from telling you that you should have a good talk with him and tell him what you think. He loves and respects you and will certainly listen.
Good luck to the both of you. Bill

You have to let them make their own mistakes and pray its the right one.Only he can learn from his own mistake. . its still painful for you though.Love to both of you.

Aww bless ya Pat.. I know you are tore up about all this... I don't think anything you say will make any difference at this point...I would just be there for them both as you always are...I always find that when something like this happens it's best to just see how things pan out.. a lot of things are said and then after everything has calmed down the words are regretted.... just my opinion.... Kids aye?? always something...hang in there hun....

You can say what you think, advise but the final choice is theirs at the end of the day.....hard as it may be.

Pat,
I tell my daughter exactly what I think but whatever she does is her decision whether it's a mistake or not.  There have been alot this past year since she's only 19.  Hopefully, she will learn something from it.  That's all we, as parents can do.  I hope it works out.
Hugs,
Dana

I'd tell him what you think but he will do what he thinks is right anyway.  At least you know though that you told him how you feel.  We have to make our own mistakes in life to learn.
Sending you lots of hugs,
Lisa

I would tell him what you think ~ you have a right to do that being his Mum ~ but I am sure he will come to his own decision in the end ~ Ally

Listen, offer advice and your opinion - and let him make the decision. Be there.
