Together, my husband and I have 5 children. He has two (SD11 and SS9) that are with us 50% of the time. I have three (BD13, BS11, and BD9) that are home 90% of the time.

About to make the leap and my anxiety is getting out of hand-Very Long need tender touch with advice.

This is going to be long, detailed and somewhat uninteresting but, I want to hear from anyone that understands this and wants to weigh in.

I feel terrible but I just don't like my stepson

I have 2 boys age 15 and 10, I also have 2 stepsons aged 7 and 3. I have bonded really well with the 3yr old but I just cannot bring myself to like the 7yr old.

Put on your Objectiveness Thinking Caps...

Think as OBJECTIVELY as you can, there's no right or wrong, no sides to choose, but I'd just like to get some thoughts from folks who don't have a stake (since none of you know me or DW)...

Parenting Differences: She wants to be a baby forever

My bf is still married but has been separated for 6 or 7 years (And not because of me).  His wife left him and is still with the man she left him for.
