I am mom to 3 wonderful children ~ my oldest, Erik, is 10 years old and from a previous marriage. We split up when Erik was only a year old. We were on our own for about a year and then I met my (2nd) husband. We have been together since Erik was 2 ~ so I thought that by now things would be easier . . . . but they aren't. My hubby LOVES Erik and Erik loves him but they just don't seem to 'get' one another. I don't know if it is just me worrying about him treating my son differently (my stepdad was rough on me growing up and I am afraid I am looking for trouble because that's all I know). I just feel like my husband has no patience for Erik and it really upsets me. My son has ADHD and was just diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome ~ so he is not easy to get along with sometimes. I just kind of feel like hubby sees Erik as a 10 year old boy not as Erik ~ if that makes any sense at all. Does anyone have any advice for the bio mom in a blended family????
