Re: My kids verses his kids

My stepfather is the same way. When my full brothers were younger, they got his wrath. His children (a boy and girl) were "angels". No matter what they did, in his eyes they did no wrong. They were the most rotten children I have ever seen. I hated him when I was younger because of it. Now that I'm older, I know why he did it.. Our parents went through a nasty divorce. In turn, he did everything he could to make his children think he was wonderful. Hence, no discipline whatsoever. "let them do what they want, they'll love me" was the way he looked at things.. But of course, when we were bad, it was yelling and time outs...

Not quite sure what advice to give, I know with my mother, talking it out didn't work. He just got angry with her.
