I'm telling you, it just keeps getting better and better. My stepson got in trouble at summer school, and instead of making him do what he needed to so he could finish the course, his mom took the easy way out yet again and withdrew him from the class. My boyfriend called to talk to his ex about the situation. They argued, and although I didn't hear the conversation, the end result was that my stepson, who was at his mom's house, started yelling at my boyfriend that he'd made his own decision about summer school, and calling him names. The ex hung up the phone. My boyfriend and my stepson texted back and forth a bit--basically my stepson is mad at his dad for arguing with his mom, regardless of the reason.
I don't even care anymore. Well, I do, but I'm fed up. My problem is that now my stepson has decided not to come up and stay with us for the next two months. He's mad at his dad for trying to make him grow up and have some accountability, which he doesn't have to do at his mom's house, so he wants to hang out there instead. He always lives here for summer break, and my five-year-old has been counting the days till he arrives, making plans about what they'll do, and so forth. She worships her big brother. She won't understand any of this. All she's going to know is he isn't coming, and she'll be crushed. I'm so sick of this. How ccan I make this easier for her?
