Does anybody out there have any tips on how to speak about the issues involving the SDs & SSs with your SO without them always taking it SOOOO personally? All I'm sayong is how can I expect them to respect me when I can barely keep him in a room for 2 minutes to discuss what I feel in my soul is going on? And even worse... Once addressing it... I'm a horrible person for even insinuating a child is capable of doing nasty and hateful things intentionally... God Almighty any tips. Anything. Do I need to record the behavior to prove it like I know he truats me....
Is there ever a moment in any of y'all lives where you were like wow this is exactly what I needed thank you lord !!!! ?????
Please somebody tell me if I'm crazy for thinking that an 8 year old girl does things on purpose to hurt me and/or cause friction between her father and I. If I'm not crazy please send me examples of your own. I feel so alone I can't breathe. The mother left them and they still look at me like I took her place or something and made her go. They were taken from her for drug problems !!! I do everything for them I can possibly do to make them feel loved and cared for. What am I missing ?
So there's SD8 and SD4 I think I'm doing that right (step daughter and the age?) anyway I guess my issue is that I FEEL like even after having them with us over a year now ... they do things intentionally to be ill towards me for no specific reason. Their dad can't see it and makes me feel like a horrible person for even saying how I feel. Am I wrong ? Somebody please just be straight with me. Are kids at these ages aware of what they are doing or is he right and I'm just a complete trash parent ?!
