My daughter is adjusting -to her ability - of not living with us as we are trying to break away from her feeling she has to see us every day. McDonald’s has closed the lobby’s and no dine in eating again but thankfully this time keeping her. My son has lived in his apartment for nearly a week and only taken what he wants. We drew up the paperwork with an attorney yesterday to remove his personal belongings including the two vehicles and now waiting to serve him since we have no address but ours. We very politely are setting boundaries with my parents and “there need to know” since it’s very difficult to explain to others who have “normal” kids that mine are not and cannot expect them to think, act, or do as if they are, I cracked open a door I should have remained locked and in doing so have caused permanent damage. By opening up to share some of our life has caused my parents to never accept my son or allow him to come for any holidays or events - and now I have to live with that!. His feelings of rejection and not being accepted are real, he is rejected and he’s not accepted.
