Don't know what to do!!
Hi everyone. I just wanted to see if anyone can give me advice. Last night, my daughter refused to kiss her little brother and it made my husband, which isn't her bio-dad, get really upset. He told her that she had to go straight to bed and he wasn't going to pick her up from daycare to hang out. I sent my daughter to her room and said that I would come in and talk to her later. I told my husband that the kids are siblings and have to develope their own relationship. He started yelling at me and telling me that I spoil her too much and that I love her more than our son. My daughter could hear everything that was said!!! He started belittling me in front of my son. He then left for a couple of hours. I put my son down for bed and got my daughter to come talk with me about what had just happened. I had to hold back tears as she asked, why did Paul leave, is it my fault. She is only 5 years old!!! I had to explain to her that sometimes adults fight and that she is still loved and I apologized that she had to hear us fight. This morning, he wrote me a letter saying that I love my daughter more than our son and that I don't contibute to the family as much as he does financialy. Needless to say, I am tired of it all. I love both of my kids equally. He says that I do not understand what it is like to be a step parent. Does anyone know of any books that I can buy for my husband? Or maybe he should go to counceling.
