Our life is highly unpredictable. Sometimes, you hear someone’s story and think it’s more fascinating than many Hollywood movies. In the life of our heroine today, an unexpected twist also occurred, involving her adult son.

One of our readers reached out to us.

Thank you for trusting us with your problem! We have some tips for you that might come in handy.

Talk to your son.

Even if you don’t like how your son acts, it’s a good idea to keep talking to him. Have a chat with him and listen to his side of the story. Maybe your daughter-in-law didn’t share everything, or your son didn’t want to explain everything.

Tell him about your worries and disappointment in a clear and calm way. Let him know how his actions affected Tina, and say that you expect him to take responsibility for what he did.

Ask him to take responsibility for the child.

Tell your son that he needs to take care of the baby too. Taking care of their child is a joint responsibility, and it’s not right to abandon his own kid, even if his feelings for Tina have changed. Motivate your son to be engaged in the child’s life, both in terms of emotions and money. Try to create opportunities for your son to spend time with the baby. This could help them form a stronger bond and have a better relationship in the future.

Apologize if needed.

If you think the things you said on the wedding day were too strong, consider saying sorry. Sometimes, we say things in the heat of the moment. It was an important day for your son, and maybe emotions got the best of you. Share your feelings and viewpoint, but also admit that your words might have been painful.

Keep in touch with Tina.

Stay in touch with Tina if she’s okay with it. Offer your friendship and support, showing that you truly care about her and the child’s well-being. Your assistance will likely be appreciated, especially since she’s now a single mother.

No matter how calm and routine our daily life is, surprises can come at any moment. One way to deal with a situation is to share it with others and hear words of support. Fortunately, in the era of the Internet, this is easy to do.
