Step Children Hate Me
I have been a step mom for 18 years and have dealt with so many problems from thier natural mother due to her hating me and my husband. I also have 3 children of my own. My problem is this, I am in no way a perfect person but I have really tried to be a good step mom and treat all of children the same. I believe that thier real mother has brain washed them against me. I knew it was happening from the little comments and laughing they would do at my expense and the fact the the mother would write me letters and my husband telling us they hating me. I thought as they got older they would come to see the truth and except me, however this is not the case. My oldest step daughter lived with us for four years and yes she is closer to me than the other two. but the other two are 25 and 21 and will not except me still. I did nothing to them I did not take thier father from them on the contrary his ex was remarried before we were ever engaged. I am at my wits end because I love these children I have seen them grow up and know what they have gone threw. I just dont know how to get through to them that I want to be excepted by them, it is affecting my two sons that are their half brothers as well. any advised or questions are appreciated.
