Had an interesting discussion with someone, in which I had to explain how S12 is coping with his mom up and moving out of state. This other person had mentioned that parents shouldn't be able to skirt their responsibilities.
It took me a while, but I've come to the conclusion that maybe kids are better off when parents can make such decisions.
Think about it for a minute - if a parent is so involved in whatever, maybe it's better that they're not a toxic component in the life of the child.
That said, hopefully such parents can reduce the toxicity and become a healthy, involved part of the child's life.
