I have been with my bf for a little over a year.
He has two kids outside our relationship who are a bit older then my 3year old daughter. For some reason.. It seems as tho he has taken quite a temper with her.. She acts out in stores and when she doesn't get her way. I get that. Terrible twos and terrifying threes.. But. He has slapped her in the mouth before for spitting.. And now slapped her in the mouth for sticking her tongue out. She's 3.. I know she can get out of hand but I feel if you really want to be helpful or raise her. Put her in the corner.. Talk to her firmly if you need to.. But slapping a child who isn't yours seems obsessive to me. Her father is still in her life but he spoils her so much that discipline seems to only come from my side. Should I be upset? Is he trying to help and I'm being sensitive? What's a better why to take? I'm concerned and confused..... Help!?!?!?
