For the last 2 months my son has been sleeping with my mom and stepdad. Early in the morning my stepdad will put him in bed with me. My problem is that he needs to sleep in his own bed and if he wakes up in the middle of the night I should be the one getting up with him not my stepdad. I dont know how to tell them that he cant sleep with them forever. My other problem is my son wont have anything to do with me if my stepdad is around. It hurts my feelings. My son is spoiled and when he doesnt get his way he has tantrums and well he gets picked up. He has never learned to self sooth because my stepdad has always given in so that he doesnt have to listen to the crying. Im tired of them having control over where he sleeps and that I have to tell them where I am going with him all the time. Its like living in hell as a teenager all over again. Im also tired of feeling guilty about leaving my son at home with my parents when I want to go out. I just dont know what to do anymore..should i let them control me with everything about my son? I am also ready to take my son's bed apart and put it in storage since its just sitting there not being used.
