Hi all as some of you may know my family circumstances have changed & im was just wondering if the ty family has any helpful advice to help me cope better.
here,s a little about how my circumstances have changed & how my life has been turned upside down.
my wife has 2 children that were living with there father until late last year when he committed suicide by hanging himself & my wifes son (13) found him when he walked straight into his dad hanging.after this the children went to live with there aunty & uncle but now have come to live with us full time.
me & my wife dont have any children of our own so im very excited about having them around but its such a big change from having no children to having 2 children that i had only met for 2 hours previously before they came to live with us.even though i dont have any children of my own i will still treat them as if they were my flesh & blood but i just dont know where to start.my wife is very good with them but i dont have a clue & im getting stressed out by it & its making me bad.
i want to do my best by the children & im trying my best but i dont seam to be getting anywhere.i dont think that they will ever accept me as a father figure so what do i do should i just try to be there friend or will that not work as i need to be the person that set,s the rules.
any help from all you mums & dads out there will be much appreciated.the children have had so much upset in there lifes so far & i want to do as much as i can to make there lives better.
thanx in advance any help would be much appreciated.
a stressed out skunk-mad.
