For awhile at the beginning I thought it was me, I thought I hated all children expect my own, until I talked to a very close friend who knows my stepson very well also. As we began talking we realized we felt the same way, and in fact it wasn't us who hated children, there's just something off about this one.
At the beginning of my relationship with my husband I stayed away from being his parent, he isn't a bad kid, other than not being taught how to respectfully talk to someone or picking up behind him, but he's only six. At first you think he's shy and quiet and for the most part he is, but there's something about the look in his eyes sometimes. I don't trust him alone with my daughter for a second she's only 15 months old. I thought at first he might be jealous of her, because his father acts as hers too. He's the only father she knows, but I soon realized he seems to be jealous of my daughter with me? When I started to get my stepson during the day while he's father worked I noticed he would try to manipulate his father and I to fight to gain whatever it is I wouldn't let him have, and I had to have conversations with him about under minding in front of the stepson, but I almost feel like my daughter is in harm's way with him being here.
When she was learning how to walk she grabbed the chair he was sitting in to stand up, and he swears he didn't, but the chair moved enough to let her fall and bang her head against the leg of the chair, I usually don't panic but this landed us in the ER. My daughter hardly ever falls, and yes accidents do happen but this is a feeling I can't shake, and almost one I feel like I shouldn't ignore. I can't tell my husband I think his son is evil but IDK how to deal with this situation
