Well, I don't think you have to 'cut him off' officially. Just don't give him any money and be codependent in his life choices that aren't good. You can set boundaries with him like anyone else. Say something like "I love you and am here for you. But I don't have money to give you and will say no when you ask. And my expectation is that if you become verbally abusive to me, that we end the conversation for that day". Then if he does, say no to money. And if he becomes abusive, calmly say "I'm sorry, but this makes me uncomfortable. You have to leave (or leave yourself, however the situation calls for)--- and we can talk again later."
Cutting off our offspring is painful. in the long run, you'll hurt from doing that, I believe. good luck
It concerns me that You say He's "very angry", that He "abuses" and "bully's" You. At 23 He is not a child, He is a grown man and it's VERY disconcerting that He would treat His Mother this way. You say He lives with His Dad - Can You talk to His Father about this ?? Irregardless of why You're not together You are still both Parents to Him and I would expect His Father would support You on this. Otherwise, You may need to take more serious steps : as in a formal restraining order. It is NOT okay for a 23 year old man to "bully" or "abuse" anyone, certainly not His Mother. Good Luck
So, what is he angry at you about? What happened? Maybe that would help us in helping you. :>)
Your second post came as no surprise to me. It's apparent that Your Son has issues. You are not the only one He's been abusive to but EveryOne in the Family. His own Father had Him arrested for WRECKING !! His house !! To me that attests that He's beyond You or His Father's guidance (let's remember He's 23). I'm sure You've already taught Him 'right from wrong' - He's choosing to be abusive to You, His Father and even His Sister. You shouldn't tolerate this because He's Your Son - after all He's not treating You as a Mother. I would suggest the 'tough love' approach and I would take a restraining order. Your message to Him would be that His behavior is NOT alright and that You are NOT going to tolerate it. Strangers on the street treat You better than He is treating You. I don't speak without feeling here. I once had to take a restraining order against my own Son. It's a painful thing to do but sometimes it's necessary. My heart is heavy for You in this situation and I Wish You The Best. PS: "When He has money He's nice as anything" that's because He got what He wanted. When He doesn't get what He wants He's abusive. He needs to know His Family will no longer tolerate that from Him. His Sister has taken the best approach for HerSelf and I'm certain She loves Him too.
May i ask why you don't see him as much as he'd like? Is it because he's abusive, that would be a no brainer, if that is the case, make sure he knows why you're not seeing him as much as he'd like and tell him that if you can heal your relationship and his other relationships it would be an incentive to see him more. Or, if it's because he's always hitting you up for money, same thing.
It isnt your responsibility to give this grown man money. Until there are boundries set and the enabling is over with he will continue to act like this. I know this is easier said than done but continuing to give in when he has a temper tantrum isnt helping him at all.
