my son is 11 years old. i want to give you a little bit of background. his father and i are divorced, both remarried. his father gets him every weekend and they've always been very close. as i start to type all this out i'm thinking, ya know, my son does have a lot of things going on that would be hard on a kid. he doesn't like his new stepmom at all, his step father who is very close to is in jail (long story). i've made an appointment for my son to see a counseler, but what else can i do?! he's getting in trouble at school, his attitude is completely out of control, i am at my wits end! i know part of this is normal tween stuff but part of this isn't. what do you suggest? his father and i have been divorced for 6 years and he still gets upset about it. i told him tonight he's just gonna have to accept that we are apart and that's how it's going to be. i mean, we've been apart for longer than we were together! sorry this is so long, i'm just torn between grounding him forever from everything and spending time just trying to make him happy. ahhhh
