Q I have two grown children, both in college. My new husband has two children, 8 and 10. Even though I've been around them now for over four years, I just can't seem to get used to the 8-year-old boy. He's very hyper -- his mother has him on Ritalin. Everything he does gets on my nerves. I know that's a horrible thing to say, and I feel awful, but my kids are grown and I've gotten to a point in my life where I love that. I knew it would be an adjustment when we got married. My question is, "How do I cope?" What's good ex-etiquette?
