Some of you know that my mother is difficult at best, and being her only daughter, she uses me as a sounding board. I haven't had an attack from her in quite a while, so I guess I probably should have seen it coming. My son is trying to get a FAFSA grant through DeVry University. My mom has been taking him down there because I work. Well, she went and told them that she raised my son, I have nothing to do with him, etc. SO NOT TRUE. DeVry says they want my tax returns for 07 and 08. Well in 07 I claimed her - I lived with her, paid the bills, paid for the food, etc. So now she has told them I have nothing to do with my son, but they are BOTH claimed on my taxes!!!!! I told her no. My other two kids got FAFSA's without taxes returns, so Brandon can too! So this morning I drop my son off at her house to go back to DeVry. Without the taxes. She called me and told me that I am worthless, and I have ruined my son's entire life. Um SHE LIED NOT ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Besides, I am not so comfortable with passing copies of my tax returns!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need to back away from her. I am just not sure how to go about it. She made me cry. Again. I have never understood how a parent can be so hateful.
