As a school counselor, kids tell me things. Here are seven things most kids wish they could tell their new stepparent:
- I want my parents to get back together. Maybe that's not really a secret; you probably already know this. The secret part is that it's NOT because I don't like you. It sounds weird, but it has nothing to do with you. I just want the two people I love most in this world to live in the same house so I don't have to go back and forth or worry about either one.
