Raising Step Children
My cousin married a man who has 2 kids and she says it is currently the hardest thing she has to do. Why is that, I asked. She then replied that they are not willing to get along with her despite that they are now all family. I have to admit I do not think that I would be able to do that and still be sane. The kids call her names and refuse to cooperate and this is daily. She has hid this from us because she felt embarrassed and total failure. I am sure there are support groups and forums for this sort of thing because there are some things she wont talk about with us.
