I am a step parent to 3 boys ages 7-11 and have been for 3 yrs now. When my kids (except the oldest) walked in the door today they not once said hello or even acknowledge my presence for that matter. They just walked by me like I wasn't even there! I was SO hurt! Everything that I do for those boys and this is how I'm treated?! My husband says (not in a tender voice mind you), "they're kids!" Well, I'm sorry, to me that's not an excuse! Number one they weren't raised that way for crying out loud! Secondly I haven't seen them in a few days and I missed them! I said to my husband (in an upset voice) I can't believe you don't have my back on this!! He said, well, I have to have there backs sometimes too you know.
Now I'm even more ticked off and I don't want to be around any of them!!!
I think if my husband would've had my back and privately talked to them, like he has before, then I probably wouldn't feel as hurt as am I feeling now. UGH!!
Am I wrong for feeling this way?
