Since I met my husband I gained a step-son also and I love him very much even though I didn't think I ever wanted children. He is 16 yrs old and is technically in his mother's custody, however, since the conviction he doesn't go home much and spends most of his time at friend's houses. I can't blame him for not wanting to be around his mom and older brother as they were the ones who helped set his father up and send him to jail. Allen loves his father ALOT and really misses him. I have told him he is welcome to "crash at our house anytime he wants and he does come on occasions. Since I have never had kids before, let alone a teenage boy, how do I get him to open up an talk to me about what he is feeling? He is a very smart kid but I am afraid he is going to turn to alcohol or drugs to deal with the pain. Since I am not his real parent and he is only known me for about 2 yrs I am not quite sure what role I should play.
