I specifically joined this group on a day that I had a breakdown. My son is deployed but not for too long, but longer than ever before. There are so many negative shipmates that are in his ear. Although I keep reminding him how many plans he had in the Navy, how many dreams for his future he had, he over rules me with his own negativity. I'm worried. I encourage him and send scriptures and try to inspire him. I remind him to stay clear of negative people an he agrees. He is bigger than this, he always has been the one that picks up the under dog and befriends the friendless. I'm sure there is alot of cabin fever going on, my question is how much is too much for me to do? I want to force him to stay home on a weekend off, he wants to drive endlessly and be alone for a minute. Which one of us is right? My gut says make my baby stay, be his mommy and do for him. Remind him home is always home. Am I wrong? Should I just let go and let be?
