I don't have my own bio teens (yet) but I have 3 step teens :)
I think the hardest part for ME..as being just a step mom... I would have to say is letting go is the hardest thing. The oldest is going to college this year and I am watching thier dad and it just seems like he feels he's being pulled in two different directions with it..one letting him go enuogh to be his own man and in the other hand..holding on to his kid,lol.
He worries constantly about him moving 3 hours away to a dorm...worries on what he's going to do about changing his oil and what he's gonna do if his tire goes flat,lol. I told him...you had to learn too dad..you did it and you were fine..he'll be okay! Just trust that you raised him well and taught him well and he will do well.
I know its easier for ME than it is for HIM...I will be there soon enough! :(
Why do our babies have to grow up??? sniffle sniffle,lol.
