I really need some help with this.

I'm sitting in my bedroom really upset and don't know how to deal with this at all.

OH was summoned to exw's house tonight to talk about the children. They are 12 and 8. I have 2 of my own too. The dsc spend half the week and eow with us.

Apparently they have been upset and not wanting to come to Dad's as they feel I'm too strict, and they don't feel I should ever tell them off.

You know, the I wouldn't mind so much if it weren't for the fact that I hardly ever do.

I'm gutted. I thought they accepted me, and now I find that they've been slating me behind my back.

How can I move forward? I don't even want to be in the same room as them this weekend, I feel really betrayed.

Not ignoring any replies I might get, but I'm going to have a bath, will come back later, I promise. Please help!

Well done, SweetSeraphim.

Those kids are lucky to have you smile

Thanks matey smile I couldn't have carried on like it was this weekend - so tense I thought I might explode!

Step-parenting is one of the hardest things I have ever done. I thought parenting my own was hard enough!
