hate to harp on this, but...
Am I wrong to think my SD is "sick"?
Just want to revisit my son's graduation. My SD not only got him a bag filled with a ton of stuff for college (things that a parent would normally buy, like supplies, towels, etc.), but she also got him a couple of gift cards and gave him money. It was way over the top and wholly inappropriate, in my opinion.
I'm not saying this in isolation. This is a kid, from the time my son was born, who tried to be "little Mommy." When someone would ask a question about our son's birth, before my wife or I could answer, my SD would! She would correct him even if my wife or I were in the room at the same time. She would thank people who came over for a birthday party as if she was the one giving it. I fought her every step of the way, and to my wife's credit, she did support me on the "correcting" part and it did stop for a number of years.
I really think she has a psychological problem, doesn't know her role, and this helps build her self-esteem in some way.
Am I off-base here?
