My son made me so uncomfortable while visiting him, I got up

This answer was rated:

My son made me so uncomfortable while visiting him, I got up and snuck out of his home and flew home,I'm wondering if I should have handled it differently ,been more supportive knowing he has mood swings like his Dad who was worst..........


This may not have been the best choice, but at times it may have proved the only choice to prevent a more horrific response. Ideally you should have done what you suggested, but forgive yourself as the ideal is not always an option. If it feels right, i might suggest that you reopen the lines of communications with a telephone call and try to explain what and why what happened transpired. We are all human and to err is human. Best wishes and good luck.
