I can't stand my sd sometimes. I mean I love her to death and she is only 5 but she is so mean, hateful, decietful, she doesnt listen, she cries about everything. She does things like pour water out of the tub onto the floor and blaming my 2 year old who cant really defend herself. rolls her eyes, smarts off at me, she lies on dh and me, she once told my inlaws that dh locked her in a closet and dh was out of town working. She will pinch dd and then then say dd pinched her. I have seen it! she will push dd off the couch for no reason.
Whenever dd does something to her I make her apologize and hug her. When she hurts dd, I tell her to apologize and she just stands there and stares at me. then proceeds to scream and act like I beat her. If were alone I can get on to her and then we go about our business, but if dh is home or if my inlaws are over, I can just look at her and she will run and hide behind one of them and tell them she is scared of me. I have never done anything to this child besides spank her when absolutely necessary.
and before you go crazy on me for disciplining my sd, We have sole custody Her mother abandoned her at 6months old and I think she is in jail now. my inlaws raised her until she was 18 months old when I took over. so I am basically her mother.
Sorry so long ok vent over... Bash if you must! IDGARA!
