Jerk dad

by Heather
(Las Vegas)

My dad cheated on my mom.

Then married the lady after the divorce.

I hate her like my older brother.

She has two kids who are brats, but because I'm 12 I can't pick which parent. My step mom is a jerk. My dad always comes up with a excuse.

I can't handle it anymore. I love my mom and step dad. I want to live with them.

Be positive
by: Emmily Napier

Dear Heather,

Thank you for bravely sharing your story with us.

I am sure it will help other children that are in a similar situation. They learn from you that they are not alone.

Although it is difficult for me to understand your exact situation from your description, I guess it must be hard for you.

First of all, stay positive. You cannot change your father and your step mother. Accepting how they will take some stress out of you.

Did you talk to them about your unhappiness?

Did you talk to your mother about your situation and did you ask her to arrange that you can move in with her?

If both of you really want it, you can step over the obstacles that have prevented you from living with your mother and step father.

But in any case, be positive. It does not help you to stay angry for a long time. Focus on the positive things in your life and on your future.

Best regards,

Emmily Napier
