Help with Boundaries
Hi guys. I'm new here. I'm really struggling with my husband and skids. I have two skids plus two of my own children I had with my husband. My kids are 2 and 7 months. My skids are 8 and 4.
My husband basically wants me to parent his kids. When we first got together I started doing nearly everything for my skids. I really loved my husband and wanted to prove I would be a great mommy. This has bitten me in the ass. I now do 80% of the parenting for all of the children and I'm completely exhausted. Today I tried to tell my husband that I'm uncomfortable parenting my skids. They both have started demanding to go back to bio mom when they don't like our rules or don't get their way. He told me we are married and that I'm their mom when they are here. Basically he informed me I have to act as a parent. I feel like he's dead wrong. I think he's just lazy. I'm feeling very taken advantage of. I also know my skids tell their mom outrageous stories about me. Once the 8 year old said she was scared I'd murder her???? I need help and support. What should I do???
