If anyone has any great advice on being a step-parent when the going gets rough, I'd love to hear it. I'm at the end of my tether with trying to deal with the hurt of an adult son who is constantly late, doesn't show or changes his plans at the last minute when events are scheduled around his availability.
My selfish small person wants to dig in her heels and refuse to plan anything else EVER around his schedule or him coming ... sigh ... but my reasonable side says that isn't the right answer. I'm so frustrated that I am not able to think straight about the situation.
If you've "been there and done that" already, I could use some wisdom and guidance. Just because he is treating us like we aren't important to him doesn't mean that we should do that to him. Sigh ... it is very tempting though ...
