I have been with my step children for 2 yrs. They were 4 & 5 when I meet them. Their mom is NOT involved in their live. Their mother is homeless & a drug user. I have see her 3times but have talked to her more on other ocassions. The last time she saw the kids was 7mths ago. She doesn't call doesn't write NOTHING. The children are very angry at her & I am now having problem with the youngest at school. The behavior is very much because of his anger towards his mom. The oldest went from c's & d's to the HONOR ROLL. But as of today the oldest has started acting up in school like his younger brother. Last night they brought up their mom & the oldest said I wish I could just forget about my mom & the youngest said I wish I could remember my mom. I was moved to tears. I said to the oldest why would you say that he said when I think of mommy I get mad. I DONT BLAME HIM I WOULD BE PISSED TOO. I told him just to remember all the good times you had with mommy not the bad things. I said I was sorry that he felt that way.I really don't know what to do anymore. I have talked to our family including my boyfriend & decided to have a sit down with everyone so they are on the same page. I know that we all need to work together with the childrens emotions. I am just looking for some outside help....does anyone have any advice???????????????
