Love my step son but kind of think I don’t like him
My husband and I have been together for a little over a year now. I love my husband very very much but starting to have trouble with parenting views at the moment.
Together we have 3 children. My main issue is his 5 year old son. He’s incredibly smart but from my assessment, he’s very emotionally immature. His tantrums are out of control and it’s starting to feel like full on dread when our weekend with the kids comes up.
Lately he has been doing something new. When he asks for anything, for example a cup of juice, I have it poured into a cup handing it to him and he will continue to ask his dad for juice. Almost like I’m invisible. One day he wouldn’t let me hold his coat because he said his daddy needed to hold it. Prior to this month, these type of situations never came up. What is the root of all this? I’m worried and weirdly kind of hurt. I’ve talked to my husband about it and he denies any sort of manipulation or retaliation on his son’s behalf. Saying he isn’t capable of those kind of behaviors at his age. Was it something I did? Something his mom told him? I really don’t know. Seeing this crack worries me about the future. I love him but don’t like this little guy.
