DEAR DEIDRE: NOW my son has gone to uni I am struggling to cope.
I am a 48-year-old single mum. My son is 18 and has gone to Manchester to study, though his younger brother is still at home with me.
I worry about my son’s safety now he’s left for university in Manchester[/caption]
It doesn’t help me knowing he’s in a big city. We live in a quiet, safe rural area.
I know I have to let go and let him go out into the big wide world, but all the knife and gun crime around at the moment doesn’t help calm my fears.
Caught my girl in bed with another man… then he did something I didn't expect
SEX WITH SISTER
I had sex with my sister and now we are having a full-on relationship
My girl's wild step-sister seduced me in toilets and I'm disgusted with myself
My brother-in-law is my daughter's real father… and my husband has no idea
More, more, more!
Hot romps with sex-on-legs housemate always leaves me wanting more
Family are furious over my hot sex with brother's sister in law
I had hot sex with my 53-year-old mum-in-law while my wife was on life support
I've been bedding my 'uncle' and now his son is blackmailing me into having sex
Love my girlfriend, but find I get more pleasure from porn than sex with her
I had hot sex at Glastonbury… but I was the 20th guy she'd bedded that weekend
DEIDRE SAYS: The news can look scary but incidents involving knives and guns make headlines because they are so rare.
Can you visit your son in Manchester? You’ll feel calmer if you can picture his life rather than him seeming to have disappeared off into a scary void.
Try not to share all this anxiety with either of your sons.
They need to know that you trust they can cope and that the world is mostly a good place.
