J your mom is becoming my idol
About a month ago my son decided he wanted to make candy apples. Didn’t work out so well. A messy kitchen and apples that couldn’t be eaten. I thought for sure he was going to ruin my frying pan but luckily it all came off.
The deep fryer was worrying me for a bit. I don’t like them but he wanted to make onion rings so I got one. I’m glad he pretty much ate himself sick of them. Only wants to use it every once in awhile now and I’m usually home when he does. He knows to unplug it right away as long as he is thinking clearly.
Dealing with the mom doesn’t know what she is talking about can be hard. Especially when it comes to addiction. I find it ironic that I can give advice here on the forums or on my tumblr and get good feedback yet can’t convince my son that I have a clue. I guess it comes down to whether the person is open to or asking for the advice. Also because I’m mom, my son thinks I’m being over protective and worrying to much. I try to wait until he asks me before I voice my opinions now. Or say things like: This is what I think… When it comes to medications and such I let his nurse know what is going on and get him to talk to my son about how they work.
