Where's the love?
(Madrid, Spain )
My new husband is having difficulty in his new role as step parent. He has never been a parent before and my son (5yrs) has adapted to our new situation remarkably. My husband is super conscientious and is constantly working to improve my son's table manners, response time to requests to do little chores and general values. As a result my son accepts him but does not embrace him lovingly. And my husband doesn't 'feel' that my son loves him. We may have not planned our strategies in this new blended family so well but I wonder how I can bring them closer?
