I really just assumed that my husbands ex-wife and I would be friends (pretty naive, I guess). I am a few years older and more mature, I am realizing. My 13 year old stepson has some issue with controlling his anger and temper, which his mom just wants to ignore. We are looking into getting him some counseling right now which I'm sure will help eventually. Unfortunately he sees and hears his mom cuss us and has no problem verbally attacking his father, me and our other children. His mom did not reply to the message I sent her on facebook (I'm to chicken to bring it up face to face)I was very carefull not do put her on the defensive with anything I said and suggested we try to get to know each other. Is this just something I'll have to accept or is there hope that we will be able to talk some day. This stepmom thing is all new to me.
