My boyfriend of 12 months teases and resents my 5 year old son. He pokes fun at him till he cries the continues to call him a baby when he does cry. If I step in my b/f says im babying him and he needs to fight his own battles. He is 5. Im sick over it. Im finding it hard to fully enjoy either of them. Im worried cause my son made the decision a couple months ago to call him dad. Things were great with them for a month after that and now its back to constant stress. I love my son and I want to leave at times. Other times I worry now ill be taking the only "dad" he knows. I wish id have held off on letting him take that step. Ive talked to him numerous times how in appropriate this is but he says my child needs to change and respect him. Im stuck and feel torn apart inside.
