    Hello there,

    This sounds really very difficult and I cannot imagine how much you must be worried for your children being involved in all of this. I'm only 19 myself, so I can't pretend to have life experience relevant to this sort of thing that I can help you with. I'm quite the opposite of this and like staying close to home - I respect my mum a great deal and everything she has given up for me to grow up into who I am today. From what you say, you have done everything you can to ensure your children feel loved and supported. Something I can say having gone through rebellious stages is that children are often rude and arrogant in their naivety. We never really know it at the time and everything we're doing feels so important because of the societal pressure placed on us in various modalities. This could explain why they don't see sense.

    It must be truly heartbreaking to be going through this and I really do wish I could say something that could help you, but I just wanted to come in and acknowledge what you have said and let you know that there are people on TSR that can help, but they may take time to respond. You may be better off looking at Mumsnet for some help, there are loads of helpful parents there that I'm sure would try to give whatever experienced advice they can.

    All that's left to say is that I hope your children find their way, all you can do is be there for them and do what is in their best interest as their mother... they are the masters of their own fate in most cases, as frustrating as that is with them getting caught up in all of this. It isn't your fault, please don't blame yourself.

    I'm going to move this to Friends and family in the hope you get some more helpful responses.

    Really wishing you the best of luck
