How old is the step son? Maybe you can explain the difference in cost of the two schools and how you're taking this one as its more affordable. If he is still at school then I think its only fair he be offered the chance to go to that school too, see if there's any scholarships he can apply for.
Step son doesn’t have to miss out at our private school. You get discount for second sibling and 3+ is almost no fees. Why not negotiate. I can see the issue all children should have a fair choice
Most private’s school are only minor in comparison to actual fees discounts
But, my point was, not all places are the same. Or something like that. I don't know. I'm tired as right now, and thinking about the ex boyfriend is just making me nostalgic
Thanks all. Step son is at uni, and has a chip on his shoulder about little brother having similar abilities to him, so private school won't go down well. I accepted the place at the school.
I think it depends a lot on the personality of the step sibling. I've never begrudged my step siblings anything. They've had opportunities I haven't, even for things I wanted too. But, at the end of the day, we're still family. And family is a team sport. I've had opportunities they haven't too.
Is your stepson likely to understand the situation?
Sadly it will likely upset the other son so if you can don’t downplay it. You need to support your husband to have an open and honest situation with the other son and explain he difference and be prepared to revisit the conversation. I feel if the tables were turned you’d feel the same 100perceent right? But yes, go for it.
I think it is fair..different circumstances and easier on the finances this time around. If you could of done it for the other kid you would of but at that time you couldn't...
