My fiance has a 1 and a half year old son with his ex girlfriend. I have lots of experience with children. I've been babysitting since I was 10 and even raised 2 of my nieces. He has no experience with kids. So obviously when he has his son, I help him with his son. She has no experience with kids either. Every suggestion I make she says is dumb. Or she pretends to like my idea then later twists my words. I mentioned a bedtime schedule and she said kids shouldn't be on a bedtime schedule. The baby throws tantrums when it's bedtime, so we put him in his bed and let him have his tantrum. He got over it within 20 minutes.I even sat in the room with him (my fiance was at work). I told her about that and she said it seemed like a good idea. But later she told her boyfriend that I locked the baby in a room and ignored him all night. I asked why she said that and she said "well how do i know you dont do that?" She accused me of abusing the baby when my fiance asked why she wouldnt let him see the baby for any holidays and i confronted her. Her response was "im not there when you two have him.so how do i know youre not abusing him?" She says that i have no say in the babies life. I have tried talking to her and explaining that i dont want to take her place. But she won't listen. She's too busy being jealous that my fiance wont take her back. He told her he doesnt want her back and she thinks thats grounds for denying visitation. Am I overreacting, or is she out of line??
