Lisa notes that one of her child is finding it hard to cope with life outside the nest. “But this one is 19+ and chose to move far away from home. She is currently in school but have already completed some college, works full time, and goes to school full time. She gets a decent amount of grants, and uses student loans to cover tuition.”

Don’t Take It Personally

One person advised, “They are most likely seeing that some of their friends parents give them money and so they’re jealous, embarrassed or resentful and are blaming you. They are still emotionally immature brand new adults who are working through some of these issues. Just don’t take it personally.”

Play The Long Game

They continued, “Let them work through it, and they’ll come around. If you don’t get reactive they will know that you are still and always have been that safe place for them. That’s your value, that’s why you chose SAHM. Play the long game here. They’ll end up seeing how you handled the insults with grace. Know your worth, and this will pass.”
