  • Well, I can't help you make him stop hating you but I can give you some advice I wish someone had given me when my stepdaughter was 8. Be careful. In your need to make the child like you, you may lose yourself and let too much slide. In effect, at 12 yrs old, she may stomp all over you and your rules. Make sure he knows what is expected of him, and the consequences of not meeting those expectations.

    Other than that,. I feel your pain girl! If ya need to talk, message me!
