that hurts

Wow, the entire article she desperately tried to make it her son's fault.

another feel good story

It sounds like they cut her off before the amputation.

What a chav.  Chav is what you limeys call white trash, right?

IMHO, the kids were being little shiats but they were 16 and she needed to step up and be an grownup.  Amazing that she sees herself as blameless.
 
2013-02-23 03:18:08 PM  
God damn, what a horrible woman.  The world will be better off without her or her bloodline.

Mum of the year. Sounds like the kids need a quick trip behind the woodshed.

"While I hadn't seen him for five years, that had beenhis choice, not mine. I can't live my life blaming myself and wondering if things would've been different if I'd stayed. What's done is done and I can't change that."

His choice?  HIS? You  moved the fark out, you asswipe, and wanted him to come crawling back instead of growing up and parenting! Every second of his hell was probably of your making.

I seriously hope there's no limit on child-abuse statutes in the UK.

She made her bed, now she must lie in it.
 
2013-02-23 03:19:08 PM  
I'm not seeing the problem. If she had waited 2 years before leaving everyone would agree with her choice, but since the boys were 16 it's all her fault. Our obsession with arbitrary numbers is baffling.

It's my experience with dead beat parents (like my own father) that once they forgive themselves for their selfish and hurtful actions, they just expect everyone else to do the same. They no longer blame themselves, so why should anyone else? All the sudden your the bad guy for refusing to forgive YEARS of abuse and neglect after one tearful apology. This woman sounds like a worthless piece of shiat mom and I hope her kids never speak to her again.

No mention of a father anywhere, I see, though something about him is pretty clear.

Devin was found hanged aged just 20 at a friend's house where he and his twin brother were staying at.

Really? Where they were staying at? Bite me, Sun.

She should have named them "Sue"
 
2013-02-23 03:22:31 PM  
She's a farking mess and now so are her grown children; why is it that only stupid people seem to breed.

And this: fark that paper for running pictures of the kids when they were 5-6; she didn't leave them until they were 16 and from her description all ready on the road to ruin.

Way to abandon your kids...

Then you wait and do it a 18. At 16 they are stupid as shiat and cannot do anything themselves.

This mother deserves the old speeding bus into the pelvis routine.

So, a mother of two 16 year old sons is finding her kids falling in with the wrong crowd and being troublesome. . . .

Her solution?  Abandon them, move away, start a new life, then months later tell them they'll have to apologize to her and beg her to come back.

Yeah, real bright solution there Mother Of The Year.

If the 16 years of parenting leading up to her abandoning her kids was just as smart, no wonder the kids turned out as delinquents.
 
2013-02-23 03:26:42 PM  
The one son who hanged himself at age 20 has a pretty good excuse for not being there.

To be fair, she couldn't do the crawling.
 
2013-02-23 03:27:11 PM  
My loser sister did this. She basically moved a couple of hours away from them to be with her new boyfriend when the were young teenagers, leaving them with their dad and grandmother to finish raising them. Now that they are young adults, she actually gets butthurt that they don't want to have anything to do with her and are embarrassed she is their mom.

She did the grown up thing. She said "Ok, you are technically adults, so if you won't listen to me, you're on your own. Here's where I am if you need me." It's not very impressive that things got to that state, but given that they had, her action was reasonable.
 
2013-02-23 03:29:14 PM  
IIRC, in the UK they can legally leave home at 16. Instead of moving out, she could have kicked them out for being little shiats. If that's legal, of course. You never know.

/I know in Wales and England you can join the army at 16
//so there they go - no homelessness necessary, slackers

Yep, spot on. And they all have a theme song, too. It goes me me me me me me me me.........
And just where is the father in all of this?
 
2013-02-23 03:29:31 PM  
The surviving kid should challenge her to an ass kicking contest.

I don't think they need to be white, just culturally Bri'ish.  But yeah, they all look like council flat dwellers.

As I previously posted, it's also pretty damn ridiculous that at 16 they are helpless, defenseless children, but as soon as they turn 18 they are now able adults who can care for themselves.
The mother did nothing wrong.

...They were swearing and talking back. For my family that's a typical mode of communication (because we're all snarky assholes). But seriously, that's  normal, hardly an indicator of anything. What sort of teens have  youlived with?

If you treat your children like shiat you shouldn't be surprised when they don't give a fark if you die.
/Gonna throw a party when that bastard that is my father dies.

There is a huge difference between a 16 year old and an 18 year old.  Also:

huntertom: Ah! Another happy love-related editorial from "love it! magazine".. wtf.


From looking at the cover of that mag included in the article, "Love It!" seems to specialize in schadenfreude.

Other headlines on the cover include "Too fat to marry. Words that made this big bride cry." and "A new kidney and a new Mistress! 'Organ transplant turned my man into a cheat'"

At 16, they were not technically adults - they were still minors under the law, suddenly being w/o a home or parent, but not orphaned, probably made it difficult to get any services, especially if their mom had means of support. Also we only have her word about their behavior, no-one has interviewed the surviving twin.
