How to help my stepkids understand..... - Page 2

post #21 of 22
I have to agree this doesn't just happen in step families......................


I have left my house leaving a mad child behind because they couldn't go. Cut youself some slack.

I think the difference is that in non-blended families parents usually make an effort to spend one-on-one time with *each* child, and it sounds like the OP only wants one-on-one time with her DS, but not her DSDs. I can understand how that could cause them to feel rejected.

I've had to leave an upset DS behind when I'm going out the door to either spend time by myself or spend time with his little sister, but he knows that in a few days it'll be his turn to do something special with me -- I imagine he'd feel pretty hurt if his turn never came along.
