Do people ever stop excusing behavior "because of the divorce"?
over the weekend, my BIL said that all of SD14's behavior is "because of the divorce". her parents have been divorced for 4 years now. i really dont think she back talks and is rude/disrespectful due to the divorce. i think its bad parenting and bad influences, and i think she's aware that family members are saying its the divorce and therefore she's riding that train as long as she can.
does there ever come an age where people call these kids out and hold them, not their parents divorce, responsible for their actions and behaviors? so annoying!
