Soooo sick and tired. My stepsons are in the 3rd and 5th grade. This is the first year that coo coo bio mom with her supervised visits wants to act like she cares or has any involvement whatsoever in their education. My older ss is dyslexic among some other learning disabilites. (Who do you imagine does all the studying and homework with these kids?...hint.. not her) So this year she made sure to schedule her OWN parent teacher conferences and now this month she is trying for her OWN IEP meeting (for special ed kids) Now by law the schools can't denie her a conference but they do call and basically complain to US that they are too busy to "entertain" her wanting seperate conferences. (Basically if she wants to go she should be a grown up and go on the dates already scheduled by my dh when him and i are going.) But eventhough they complain she manages to get around it even if she ends up waiting a month for them to fit her in she gets her way as usual! Granted the kids are doing fantastic with NO help from her (they are not allowed to bring homework on their visits because it cuts into HER time) and i should just be happy about that right? I just don't know how to let her STUPID stunts not bother me sooooo bad! I don't want a drinking problem lol Please HELP!
I know that she's planning on not being there. I know very well how she operates. She's sick, mentally but, not stupid. Her illness has nothing to do with her lack of interest in being a parent but, she tries to make it look that way. She has exactly what she wants now. She's not an active mother in any way, she has people that she trusts rasingin him & she feels justified in complaining that it's everyone else's fault that she isn't a real mother. For her it's a win-win-win.
Sorry, I had to vent, too, lol

Thankfully the school is on to her antics too. Uninvolved bios can often be a pain when they pretend to out of the blue start caring. Soon she'll grow tired of pretending to care and things will return to normal for you. Good Luck.
