adult step children
Help! They all live with us. His are 24, 22, 19 mine is 11.
The 19-year-old is the only girl.
The 24-year-old has had some issues that delayed his development/maturity but is a total sweetheart who helps around the house, etc.
The 22-year-old is about to leave for a six month internship has a MAJOR attitude, no consideration and wants nothing to do with me.
The 19-year-old is a slob and only has occasional, typical teenage attitude. She is hot and cold on me.
The 11-year-old is rolling merrily along as far as I can tell.
The 24-year-old and 11-year-old are sharing a room until we can finish the basement. They have not complained. The other two have been asked to change nothing (other than pick up after themselves more) and they have attitude -- especially the one about to leave.
How can I tolerate him until he's gone so he doesn't leave angry? He will grow up A LOT when he goes, I know it. In the mean time, he is VERY hard to live with.....
