Can't deal with my fam's foster kids anymore

 

 

My family does foster care. I used to get along find with the kids, but now I can’t. Our new foster kid is too hard to deal with. We started off on the wrong foot, and now she has a lot of attitude and is rude and mean. She lives in my home and calls my mom “Mom.” Whenever she makes me upset, I got to my room, turn off the lights, turn my radio up really loud and go in my closet and cry. I try to talk to my mom, but she doesn’t understand and doesn’t always let me tell my side of the story.

 

Dear Alone,

You come from a caring family, and you are a good person. Of course it’s hard for you to share your mom, especially when you’re at an age when you may need to talk to her more. Why not show your mom this letter? You can confess that you wrote it, or say that you sometimes feel this way. Some reassuring one-on-one time can make a real difference. I hope you can also try to befriend the troubled girl. Can you talk to your school counselor about your very understandable feelings.
