Hi Chaz,

Have you sat your son down and spoken to him about the pain it is causing you? and what it is doing to your relationship?

I agree with dodo, have you spoken to your son about the issues it’s resulting in for you?

Has he got any desire to sort himself out now you have already paid all his debts for him? Of course as his parent you are going to have his back but is he also going to help himself as it’s a shame it’s affecting your relationship.
