The Ex Files: Nothing Lasts Forever Vol #15

To help with understanding why it’s not as easy as people think to “just leave”, I will be writing a few memoir collections on my abusive ex.

Ask A Teacher (Parent Edition): My Child Won’t Speak To Me. Why?

Now, I’m going to go out on a limb here on this one, and assume you mean more than what appears to be usual teenage “angst”. By “angst”, what I actually mean is that your children, when they reach a certain age, need to start forming relationships with people that aren’t their parents.
