I often ask myself why do I feel this way. I’ve been in my stepsons life since he was 5 years old. He’s now 13. My husband had custody of him up until 2 years ago. That’s when things changed for me. Because of problems with the bio mom (her lying on my husband saying he would leave their son alone, for example) caused too much friction. My husband had to leave out of state for work, and so he basically gave the bio mom custody. By this time, SS was 10 years old. Bio mom painted this pretty picture & so SS wanted to go live with her to live this great life. Mind you, she gave up her first child. That’s a different topic. Bio mom is a narcissist & manipulative to SS. He will believe anything she says. My issue with him is that when he visits every other weekend, he treats our son, his brother who is 6 like crap. He is mean to him. Bullies him. I seem like the bad person all the time because I’m constantly telling SS to stop badgering his little brother. My husband talks to him, but it doesn’t matter. At the end if the weekend, SS is back home. Another thing that bothers me is that I was there for SS since he was 5. The bio mom wasn’t there to make sure he had dinner, took a bath, take him to daycare, etc… she only started being a parent to him 2 years ago. My SS only sees these last 2 years & he adores her. I can’t sit there & tell SS his mom is a POS. But, I’m the wicked step mom. She feeds him lies about our family that makes him not want to be with us. The bio mom does not have a partner. She is alone. So she wants her son to be with her all the time. It’s not my fault she missed out on him when he was little. Although it’s not his fault, I resent him now.
