And I don't care who knows it, or how horrible you may think I am to feel this way. I write this as a cautionary tale to those of you with children who are about to make someone their stepparent. Actually, there's no use since all parents understandable think their children can do no wrong. But I hate my stepdaughter and it's not due to a personal problem I may have; when I describe her behavior (and especially that of her fathers) - acutally, it's unfair that I hate her since it's her fathers' fault that she is a slightly neurotic spoiled brat from hell. But it can't be helped. He uses her against me all the time, and seems to think the job of stepmother is to keep my mouth shut, give her whatever she wants and have no feelings. I feel that it would be so unfair if I had to leave my husband because of her, but the emotional tax is just too high. She is older and will be out of the house soon. Hopefully I can deal with her that long. God, I'm glad I never had children; though I know I would have raised my differently.
