HOW DO YOU PARENT A 43 YEAR OLD SON?
I had my son AT 16. naive,I raised him all wrong . 13 years later I had 2 daughters 2 years apart. I was involved in drugs, went to rehab learned about parenting, applied it to my girls.They are women now and doing well. . he thrives to hurt me . For 10 years he hasn't spoken to them. I've done all i can for my son, He LIVES ENTIRELY IN THE PAST. Its his whole world WHAT CAN I DO TO SALVAGE OUR AND HIS SIBLINGS RELATIONSHIP TO MAKE IT WORK.

Unfortunately, you may have been busy with two new babies while he was a teen and needed you to be there for him. He may not be willing to forgive you for the mistakes you made in the past. If that's the case, then you'll just have to accept it.

Ask my ex boyfriend's mother - she parented him until he was 59. Then she died. No idea who he's depending on now.
It was a pathetic situation

Sounds like it's too toxic on both sides to have a relationship.

He should be a parent already. He should be parenting himself

You shouldn't even be trying to parent a 43 year old.

You don't, he's suppose to take care of you.

Not at all, unless he asks for your help?

In the same way as you have done in the past 43 years.
