“Concerned mom!”

Hello! My daughter recently got pregnant and decided to terminate the pregnancy about 2 weeks ago. (we have respected her choice although it was very hard.) She has been with her boyfriend for about a year and we are meeting him for the first time soon, as he is coming to stay with us for 4 days.

We already let him know we want to discuss the matter with him because we are very concerned about how much he cares about her. He has cheated and given her an std once before and obviously they do not have safe sex or a healthy relationship. Any advice on how to have a productive discussion and questions would be so helpful!

 

“The tension between us is damaging our relationship”

My daughter graduated nursing school in June with honours, and is afraid to take her NCLEX exam and start her career . She says that she needs more time to prepare but I am trying to urge her to write the exam before she starts to lose confidence in writing.

She explains to me that she does not feel confident caring for patients and does not feel she learned enough in the school setting. I am trying to reason with her that she will learn on the job and she will have a support system when she starts. She is telling me to back off it’s none of my business and she will take as much time as she needs. Continue reading

“My boyfriend cheated on me”

Me and my boyfriend have been together for almost 3 years and we have a daughter together. Well I just found out that he cheated on me 2 years ago with a girl that he told me he’s never been with.

I’ve also caught him, not too long ago, messaging girls on a dating website asking for pictures. I don’t know if I should leave him or not. I do love him but I’m not the type of person to stay with someone that has cheated. What should I do?

“My boyfriend’s roommate needs a room for his shoes”

My boyfriend and I have been dating for two years. I am a mother of an almost 3-year-old. Being in a relationship with someone that had a child is hard on both ends of the relationship. My daughter comes first before myself or anything.

My boyfriend has a house he shares with his roommate. My boyfriend and I talked about moving in together, but he wanted to check with his roommate to see if he was comfortable with the idea. The house has 3 bedrooms and a basement. My boyfriend has a room upstairs, while his roommate uses one room to sleep in and the other room as his shoe/game room.

When my boyfriend told me it wasn’t a good idea for us to move in, he told me that moving us in would be forcing his roommate out and that his roommate had waited two years to have that extra room for his shoes. I understood the factor of not being comfortable with having extra people in the house, but it bothers me that my boyfriend agrees that his roommate having a shoe room is more important than my two-year-old daughter having her own room.
