Secrets of the Motherworld

Dec 24, 2019

“Simply put; unconditional love, ‘I love you regardless, I love you no matter what, I'll always be here for you’. 

My eldest son went to hell and back from his early to late teens, and as a result acted out extraordinarily; he was extremely aggressive, and intensely angry around the clock, disruptive, destructive, and to be honest I was terrified more than once – even to the point of calling the police twice. 

They were very dark days, throughout I kept reassuring him how much I loved him and that I would never give up on him. Many many people told me how stupid I was, but I understood his actions came from a place of pain, and I couldn't add to it. 

Step forward just a few short years, I have the most incredible, loving, supportive, and upstanding son that any mother could wish for. He is truly wonderful, we laugh until we cry, we share a very close bond. 

Never give up on your children.”

Stella tries to, but can quite remember, the names of Nancy Tucker’s books: ‘The Time in Between: A memoir into hunger and hope’ and ‘That Was When People Started to Worry: Windows into Unwell Minds’
