Thread: Hi everyone!

    Were you going to eat your humble pie before or after you nitpicked your stepson's life again? I don't suspect that anyone here is telling you to go away, but I can't fathom how this is productive or does anything to help any of his situations.

    Besides, there's an old saying that holds true in this situation. "Sh!t stinks, but it makes things grow." I can assure you that nothing you've expressed about your stepson is any worse than many of the mistakes I made at his age, but I made them nonetheless and am still standing today.

    And I hope he is still standing as well.

    I guess these are lessons that he will need to learn on his own. I wish he had made better choices (excluding becoming a Marine, of course--that was one of the smartest things he's ever done so far) but making bad decisions and then dealing with the consequences is part of growing up. I have done some truly regrettable things in my life as well but learned something each time.

    So far, other than boot camp, he does not appear to have been truly challenged outside of his comfort zone. I know that's coming (deployment), and I have a feeling that this is when his domestic situation will start to come apart at the seams. I just hope it doesn't interfere with the true task at hand of being a Marine.

    If he is any kind of Marine he will survive and become a contributing citizen to the community.

    He no longer needs help from his step mom.

    Give the boy some credit, maybe he will surprize you and the bride. Negativity does no one any good.

    Perhaps you missed the point? It's just another way of saying that the "school of hard knocks" has a way of making people grow up.

    By the looks of your profile, you're just out of bootcamp

    Actually, I moved back to my house. Were I live with my wife and two kids. Who were the reason I joined the reserves, so I wouldn't uproot my pre-existing family. I haven't lived in "Mommy's Basement" since I left for college in 2002.

    We're hardly discussing his career choices here. I opened my soup cooler because I'm at the age where you come out of all the dumb mistakes you made when you were her stepsons age. And no, I didn't list myself as my favorite Marine. I listed my grandfather, out of respect, not being conceited. I listed a man who served his country honorably, was wounded on the beaches of Saipan, and who motivated me to finally become a Marine myself.

    Anyway, carry on oldtimer. I'm done hijacking this thread.

    Enough of the bickering....take it up in PM's. If you don't have anything to say that's helpful, then don't say anything at all.
