Marley K., I feel this one so much. It truly sounds like our children could have been brothers. And still. Mine is a couple of years younger, but did so many of the same things.
He is the master manipulator for sure. And I had to get to the point where I refuse to be manipulated any further. I can’t allow my family and other children to suffer because he refuses to comply with being a person who acts even remotely right.
hugs and peace my friend.
