My mom is divorced and likes this new guy, but I hate him. She sends him care packages and romantic songs, and it ticks me off! My mom says I'm too judgmental. I'm losing my patience!
It’s difficult when moms (or dads) form new romantic connections. Try to understand this from your mom's point of view (it must be nice for her to have a new relationship), then think about what bugs you. Do you really dislike this man? Or do you dislike that he’s not your dad and is robbing you of your mom’s attention? Either way, speak up. If you say, “Mom, this might seem stupid, but I’m jealous,” she may reassure you by telling you how much she loves you. Perhaps you two could even make each other a care package. Expressing feelings can help, but be sensitive to her feelings too. And get more involved with your own friends now.
