My husband keeps complaining that my children do not consider him as their father. He is a step father, but I keep telling him that its not true, because the boys talk to him with matters pertaining school and others accept about personal matter which they do not share much with me either. Whenever they want something they come to me and this makes my husband and their step father neglected. My husband get upset and angry. What should I do?

You should tell your husband to grow up and stop getting his feelings hurt by children going to their mother rather than step father for certain things.

Even in fully biological families, kids will sometimes go to one parent over the other for different things. It doesn't mean anything except that there are some things that are "mom" things, and some things that are "dad" things.

He should be happy that the kids are getting the attention they need. If they need something from him, they'll go to him. If they need something from you, they'll go to you. YOU are their biological parent, and generally that is a closer bond. But it's not a competition. HE needs to grow up and continue to be there for them if they do come to him for anything.

But he's NOT their father......I agree with Michelle, he needs to grow up.

And even my daughter, who IS my husband's child, comes to me. It's just the way it often is. Tell him to stop sulking.

I think your husband needs to grow up.
Children will always come to Mum if they want something, doesn't matter if they have Dad or a step Dad around.
