My mum's boyfriend is constantly making her cry

DEAR DEIDRE: MY mum’s boyfriend is breaking her heart. I hate him.

I’m a 17-year-old boy and my mother is 41. She has been dating this guy, who is 45, for three years.

He is always letting her down – not turning up at the last minute or breaking his promises.

Sometimes I hear her cry herself to sleep.

She would be better off without him.

How can I tell him to stop hurting her?

DEIDRE SAYS: Your love for your mum is clear but you can’t interfere in her life.

All you can do is tell her you are worried about her and concerned this man isn’t good enough.

My pack, Standing Up For Yourself, should help you do that.

You could also give your mum my support pack Addictive Love.
