How about a fresh start for you both. Get him out of the area too. He will only get worse while he has looked to you to get him away from his abuser, and nothing is happening. He would rather hang out with homeless drug users than be in the same house as an abuser and what’s worse, have to watch his mother abused. There is no energy or headspace left when you’re just trying to survive abuse. It must be awful for him. You need to get him away from his abuser before he can heal and find the strength to want to learn and build his self esteem. I know this sounds harsh but my son was a changed boy when our abuser was arrested and he continues to thrive. Take that leap of faith x
