Hi all . My 8 year old stepson is coming to live with us. His mom has decided that she wants to marry her other childs father, and she doesn't want my stepson in the way of that.. (awful, isn't it? ) Anyway. We bought a new house, that he won't get to see until 3 weeks from today when he moves in with us. All new everything, and wil be going to a different school. I know he'll be excited because he loves being here, but I know there will be tough times, but my question is. How can I help him to adjust quickly and easily? Going to a new school, new church, living in a new home. I'm worried it's going to be alot on him, and I want to make sure that I do everything I can to make it as easy as possible.Answer Question

Wow, I don't know really. Just make it like your regular day to day life I guess. Don't treat him any differently from the other kids you may have in the house. Is this custody arrangement going through the court? If not I would so she doesn't come and say she wants him back.
