I was thinking a lot about the posts and how a lot of them are about trouble with the stepkids. While I agree this is a big problem I was thinking its not just because they are our stepkids, its because they are kids! Kids can be frustrating! My own son was acting like a complete brat last night! He is 5 1/2. It would not matter if he was my kid, my step kid or the neighbors kid! He was really frustrating me! Then I got to thinking...he is frustrating me and he is MINE! Its always worse when its someone else's kid because you can't always discipline them the same. If my sister's kids lived here I'm sure I would be frustrated w/ them at times too. Or even at the playground when one parent is not watching their kid who is running around being mean, that is frustrating too. So I think a lot of times its not just because its a stepchild, its just a child in general that is not behaving or that's being disrespectful. I think the issues do go deeper when its a relationship issue (such as my own child gives a lot of grief to his SD), but I didn't want the step children on this site to feel like its just because its a stepchild in the picture. It could be any child - just as it was my own last night being a little turd!
