Can someone explain something to me?
One of my kids has an acquaintance whose stepfather does not like him. Has, by all accounts, never liked him.
How does a mother marry someone who doesn't like her child? This is her minor child who lives with her and the new spouse.
Bonus question: would you be surprised to learn that this kid has behavioral problems in school and other places?
I asked the seminarian today to please be sure, if he ever has occasion to remarry, that his new wife likes our kids. Maybe even loves our kids. (I knew I really didn't need to ask him that.)
Is that too much to ask of a parent?
What is wrong with people?
I'm hoping I just don't know the whole story. But, I think I know enough.
