Today my almost 21 year old stepdaughter told me all about her night out. Let's just say, she would not have told her dad about it. I tried to be nonjudgemental and yet, cautionary. It made me so uncomfortable. I am not her friend, but yet I don't want to alienate her.

I never know how to handle things like this. I know it would be different if I was a bio parent. I would have blasted her about her behavior. As a step parent, I don't have the same leeway.

In the past when I have expressed my true feelings on matters, the results have not been good. Believe me, I get it.

I do wish some one out there had some realistic advice.




I wish you well........


Tigorious
