Neglected stepchildren, behavior problems, and learning issues.
Based on stories I've heard from people who have known my husband longer than he's even known his ex, I'm correct in my assumption that these kids are neglected at home. Neither of them is "delayed" in the traditional sense of the word. They're both fully capable of learning, as they do make progress whenever someone bothers to sit down and work with them. Academically, anyway. I'm at my wits end with their behavior, and so is my husband. My own children are well-functioning, educated kids (my son is actually above average), so I know it's not us that's really the issue. My husband is a great father figure to my kids. It hurts me to see him hurt so much because of his own children.
Does anyone have any personal experience or recommendations on how to handle this? I've suggested he have the children to a doctor HERE, and have them evaluated. Any ideas?
