I’ve been dating my boyfriend for 1 1/2 years and he has a 2 1/2 years old son. I have no children of my own and am 26, never dated anyone with children. Most I’m around children is my nieces and nephews very occasionally me. I’m a quiet, keep to myself person. My question is, am I expected to or required to watch his son when he’s at work at night? My boyfriends mom and sister live in the very next neighborhood, not even 5 mins away and they’re questioning my not wanting to watch him. He’s a very energetic, stubborn child that to my knowledge of children should be a lot further along in areas at his age than he currently his. The BM did not alow contact with the child and my bf family for over a year. BM lives in Alabama. So it’s new for us all I suppose.
