Call him names.
Threaten never to speak to him again.
I will never stop apologizing when I'm wrong.
Use guilt or pull the "mom" card with him.
Turn my back on him in times of need or otherwise.
Make him feel as if he is not wanted or a bother to me.
Put my needs OR wants above his.
Criticize his wife or speak unkindly of her to him.
Force him to play sports.
Give him alcohol.
Make him feel as if he should marry a girl because she is pregnant.
Live vicariously through him.
Treat him differently than any future siblings.
Deny him a shoulder to cry on, a helping hand, an open mind, or unconditional love.
I know it's hard to say never, but I hope that I have learned from my childhood & past & I hope to correct those mistakes with my own son.
In a world so full of hatefulness and hurt, I just want him to feel secure, loved and accepted.
