I'm 21years old and have now been a step-mum to 4year old boy for over a year now he lives with me and his dad, things were hard for me at first adjusting to look after someone other than myself. I've taught him how to write, I take him for walks, we go to the park, I pick him up from kindergarten and take him there on time he now eats all the food that we do when he used to nothing but chicken nuggets, he has a bed time he gets stories read to him, - none of these he had before I moved in his life is now far more stable and his behaviour shows that Evrytime second weekend he sees his mother and he comes back a different child (but thats another story). Anyway I know that he's just a little boy and needs love and stabilty and all that but when he comes to being affectionate towards him I can't do it, I'll give him a cuddle if he falls over and hurts himself but I cannot be affectionate towards him just randomly is it what you would call emotionally detached? I am fine with my my son which is his half brother and my partner seems to think that I will his sons life "miserable" - I quote, because of my lack of affection. So what I'd like to know is what everyone elses relationships are like with their step children.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
