Mod mod mod! So my mom and my step dad are getting a divorce. My parents split before I was born and I have my dad in my life but I still felt rejected when he wouldn't call so I want to protect my siblings from that as much as I can how do I do that. They told my siblings that they would split the week up and I'm worried about my sister because she thinks that I'll be going to her dads too so how do I explain that to her that I'm not.(I have a 11year old sis and 5year old brother)
Another thing my mom wants to get an apartment and my SD a house but that means that it'll be in a smaller living environment so I how do I help my mom out. What should I do when it's just me and my mom when sibs are gone because this will probly be hard. What should I do to get everyone back up when it's over. (they informed us yesterday I'm not sure how long it will take I just want to be prepared) thank mod
I'm so sorry, babe. Divorce is one tricky beast.
However, most of these questions shouldn't yours to handle. Have a talk with your mom and stepdad about making it clear to your siblings that you won't be going with them and that they won't skimp on the attention. Tell them how hard it was for you to deal with when you were younger and that you want to make sure they don't get hit as hard by it.
As far as helping your mom, you can start by making it easier for her to focus on work and relax afterward. Make sure that you stay on top of your chores, and maybe offer to help clean or make dinner every now and then.
It's hard but you can get through it! Jordan S.

nd girlies, if yah wana talk to me bout this stuff, im all ears. my dad has never been in my life, he kinda gets to lazy to get involved. yet he asks my mom if shes know places where they sell purses (for his gf)cheap! ugh! and sometimes we will hint to him oh i need this or i have that at school and need parents to help out in the morning, he will say oh i work, or im broke (when he works in the evening or at least can OFFER to help out) but watev, i hav gotten ovr it. sometimes ive gon crying to skewl, i just hate it. but its life, like they say, theres no rose without its annoying thorns
