Advice on telling your children they are 1/2 brother or sister

Lacey's picture

So my daughter..she is 7..came up to me tonight and told me that her ex..told her that her little brother is only her 1/2 brother.I never even thought of explaining this to her or how I would because I don't think it really matters.But I guess my ex felt it was his right to tell her.I am pissed off about it because I don't think it is up to him.I explained it to my daughter and she seemed to understand.I am just mad that he put me in this situation.

Just needed to vent about that.



Online Search

Hello everyone. I am fairly new to this board. I have gotten most of my questions so far answered by simply reading your posts. My question is this:

If I want to search online for any records regarding BM and her family (tax deed, bankruptcy, etc.) is there a certain way of going about doing that?

I have tried for about an hour now looking at my county's website and other places but have found nothing. I am just wanting to search their information mostly about their home.

Can you help??

Thank you for taking the time to read this!

My ex is crazy....I'm back to court again

Not ex of 4 years constantly takes me to court.We just went thru a full 2 day trail because he didn't want to pay any child support,only wanted our children to attend his Catholic Church and a Catholic School.

A bit of history might help.We were together for 5 years and have 3 children,a 7 year old daughter and 5 year old twin boys.The entire time we were together I attended a non denominational Church with our children.I always asked him to attend and he never would.Not once to he suggest we go to a Catholic Church.

Stepchildren and birth control

Help, I need advice. I have been married for 10 years and have 2 stepchildren (my husband's children from a previous marriage)and 1 child between us. My stepdaughter is 15 and my stepson is 19 and my daughter is 13. We have recently learned that my stepdaughter who is 15 is having sex on a pretty regular basis with her boyfriend. Both myself and my husband spoke with her upon discovering this and went through the whole respect yourself, use protection, etc. speach. Being a normal teenager she kind of just laughed it off and said she won't do it again.

Does anyone else feel this way?

In the seven months that have past since the EX has found out about our relationship and impending marriage she has made our life a living hell as you can probably tell from my other post. I didn't write about all she has done in that post but there has been plenty. Among the highlights, accusing us of doing "adult things" in front of the child etc. She has also accused me of doctoring her emails to my fiancee, of harassing her at work by phone etc. Of course she cannot prove any of these accusations as I have never done any of them.

Of course his bond is different with a son he sees EVERYDAY and a son he sees 6 times a month!

We were talking with family over the holiday about an old guitar that my husbands dad gave him. They asked if he still had it. He said yes and replyed I plan on giving it to "johnny" when he gets older. A bold family member said why aren't you giving it to "timmy." My husband simply said that he wants to give it to our son and changed the subject.
Why is it so difficult to grasp the concept that althought he loves both of his sons equally the bond and closeness will be different? Is this such a strange concept?

BM is at it in full force; I fear for SD's safety!

Wow. Things just keep getting worse and worse. BM called my fiance today at 4:00 to cancel their weekly Daddy & Daughter dinner (so what else is new?) and demanded to instead meet privately in person to discuss "some issues" because SD had had "a bad night" last night. My fiance insisted that if she needed to discuss something to please do it in writing. She threw her usual tantrum when she saw she wasn't getting her way, but he stuck to his guns and repeated that she should send him an email.

Hi, everyone. I have been reading some of your blogs and have become inspired to join you all. I'm new and have some concerns of my own. I would so like your advice or suggestions on some of my own stuff having to do with the exes and my new bigger family. I look forward to hearing from you guys. Smile

Stepson Ripped from Our New Year's Eve Party

I guess is was partially our fault but it was horrible none-the-less. We looked at the holiday schedule and it seemed to say that stepson would be at our house for New Year's Eve. Stepson swore he was at his mom's house last year. We didn't hear form biomom about picking stepson up on Sat. night when he would have been picked up if she had him for New Year's Eve so we thought we were good to go.
