Is it normal to dislike your step kids?
My partner of 3yrs has two kids, 10yr girl & 8yr boy. They pretty much rule the roost and as long as they are happy everything is rosy. They live with us 24/7 as their mother has nothing to do with them. I have grown kids of my own so been there and done that, but try as I might to raise these two to have respect & manners, I just get shot down by my partner every time.
They are the most painful kids, they need to be on top of us all the time, they do not know how to just play instead we're tripping over them both all day. Unless the TV is on and then they are complete zombies!
Little boy has a cheeky mouth for everything and his daughter, well she is underhanded and very sly, she knows all she has to do is cry to her Daddy and whoever she lies about will be in trouble, he cannot see this!! Nothing is ever their fault either, even when I catch them red handed, it is always someone else's fault, backed up by their Daddy.
I find myself becoming angry over stupid things, which is not who I am, they just frustrate me so and know it!
