BJ'S BLOG 03/12/13 "Annoying Kids or Bad Parenting"

Yesterday we received a message from a Rock-A-Holic named Tracy who is having trouble with her boyfriend’s son.

Now Tracy has been with her guy for a year now and has met his son. Even though she loves her boyfriend, she can’t stand his 6-year-old son. She says he’s whiney, throws fits, doesn’t listen, and isn’t self sufficient.

Only one of her kids actually gets along with him but the rest don’t like how he doesn’t share and gets away with things they can’t.

Tracy isn’t sure how to tell her boyfriend that she really doesn’t like his son or if this is as far as this relationship will ever go.

I’ve seen this happen and I think that most people really don’t care about their partner’s kids. Why can’t single people with kids understand that is simpler to just keep the romance away from the family? 

I think the “Brady Bunch” mentality is a fantasy and doesn’t work and situations like this prove it.

The kids get drawn in to the drama all because mom and/or dad want to get some action, and what happens to the kid? They’re the ones that get really hurt in all this.

Why can’t people just go out and get their needs met without having to introduce them to the kids? That way the kid won’t worry about this new person leaving one day too.

9 times out of 10, it doesn't work.
I agree BJ, 90% to 99% of the time this doesn't work. Perfect example, my mother-in-law hated her ex-husband's daughter. Problem is she had no logical reason for hating her, she just despised her mother who was the reason for her previous divorce due to an affair. The little girl was 4 and was never even given a chance, she was just hated for who her mom was. *And yes, my wife's mom and dad played partner swap with another couple. Dad had an affair and married the other woman. Mom then started dating the other guy out of spite. Dad is still married because they're truly happy together, Mom is divorced because the relationship started for all the wrong reasons.*
