I know I have spoiled my grandson in the past, but he needed it. He has been in Care since he was 13. He has lived in a few Care homes in the Andover area before he was found supported shared housing in London when he was 16. Once he was living in London, I could keep a better eye on him and also try to make sure that he had lovely family celebrations for his birthdays and he was able to be there for other people in the family's birthdays and celebrations. He knows that no matter how much trouble he has got himself into, that I will Love him regardless. As he is 19 almost 20, he has now been forced to fend for himself.
He was extremely verbally abusive to me on one occasion last year and also threatened my younger son (his uncle) with physical violence. :mad: As a result of this behaviour, I made it quite clear that the many ways that I had been willing to support him financially would now stop. I would simply give him a birthday and Christmas present each year and leave it at that.
He is now homeless because he was aggressive and abusive to staff and other young men living in the same supported housing. :mad:
He had so many opportunities for a job that the staff arranged for him. He deliberately turned up late for some interviews or performed badly to ensure he was not offered the job in question. :mad: He started a well paid job at a recycling plant last year and walked off the job 3 days later. :mad: He got a job with McDonald's in one of their West End branches but decided on the day that he was due to start work, that he did not want to work for McDonald's. :mad: He started more than one qualification at College but did not complete any of them and they each of them would have helped to secure him gainful employment. :mad:
It is really sad that he is estranged from his Mother and his stepfather, so he has come to rely on me to step into the breach again and again. Now that he has spent the last 3 years demonstrating how little he cares about being in gainful employment, I have finally lost patience with him.
