Broken family

I am sure that most of my readers know that I was divorced and married again. The side effects of having children affected by a divorce continue to really cause some bad times in our house. Sometimes, I don't know if I get myself too worked up because I worry too much. Or if I think the conflict is divorce and it's really dealing with a teen. Our situation is different than most because shortly after the divorce my teenager son really wanted to live with his Dad and our younger son stayed with me. So, during the average week, the boys are with each other on the weekends and apart on school days. There is some change to this routine with holiday breaks and summer, but mostly it's the way I just said. I don't know if the kids fighting is normal brother stuff or because they spend time apart and get set in their routines. Plus, my ten year old, has a two parent household where my teen has only Dad at home. This means that my younger son had more resources when it comes to us providing for his needs and also we have more time for him.

I am going to try to take the time to blog about some of our challenges with the different households and some of the things that tend to make us all feel miserable.

Please feel free to leave comments giving me your two cents on this subject or to ask questions.

I can't imagine how difficult this all is. It is so wonderful that you are aware of the challenges though.
