My Children Don't Talk Bad About Their Step Father Because Both I As Well As My Ex Won't Allow It
I don't mean to sound sassy here - but honestly - we never have to deal with issues in our step/blended family home when it comes to my DD's - they are 7 and 11 and actually on their own worry instead about whether or not their SDad has to work too hard for our family.
They are taught that they are children, adults are to be respected, and things are to be appreciated and grateful for - "Count your many blessings" <- my mom sang it to me as a child and we've also followed in this nighttime tradition -
Maybe the whole skids complaints and issues wouldn't be as much a problem in general (as we deal with too per my own skids) if the parents themselves didn't play such a role in creating the issues to begin with -
This is currently my opinion - please do feel absolutely free to discuss and disagree with - thanks - ;)
**No I do not have perfect kids - nor do I pretend they are - they too had initially attempted to use the poor me/I'm a victim/he's mean thing - once - and in response both myself as well as their Dad addressed in a manner that they knew that this kind of thing wasn't going to fly/be accepted -
