Stressed out, stepkids hate me
My boyfreind and I have a son together and another baby on the way. I love him and my son. They mean the world to me. When my boyfriend and I started dating, I found out he took in 4 kids from a sibling about 3 years prior to us dating. I thought he had such a big heart for doing that and thought I could handle the kids. I ended up moving in with him after finding out I was pragnant. At first things where good. The kids who were 13, 12, 11, 10, at the time got along pretty well for about the first 6 months. Its probably cause I didnt interfere with their lives for the first few months. After a while I stated to find a little bit of authority for myself and tried my best to help out my boyfriend as much as possible with them. I guess the two younger ones didnt like that and began to give me dirty looks everytime I asked something of them, like take the trash out. After son was born things only got worse. I ask them to quiet down when my son is napping and they never listen. I ask them to do chores before I get home the the 2 younger ones rarely do. I do ground them for not listen, but usually doesn't work. I can her the to of them whispering to each other and when I enter the room they stop. They are constantly giving me dirty looks. It seems like the only time they are nice is when they want something. I rarely buy them stuff anymore because I feel disrespected by them and I told them that. I have been living with them now for almost 2 years and my boyfriend and I have another baby on the way. But I dont know if I can handle the 2 younger ones anymore. It's gotten to the point to were my boyfriend and I will being sitting in the livingroom together and they will say goodnight to him and walk away. That really hurts. I love my boyfriend and he is a great father to all of the kids, but he is completely clueless about something happening right in front of him. I'm at the point now were I just want to take my son and run away. I feel like my stress level is at its breaking point.
