Blended families are par for the course nowadays, and often the children in these families come with their own sets of challenges. While the Jamaican saying that if a man loves the cow he will have to love the calf too should hold true, there are instances where no matter what a stepparent does, they will never be accepted.
How would you handle your relationship if the children of the person you are with hate you?
Well, I would have to talk to my man about the disrespect from his children. I wouldn't get too involved in that because I know that can go south.
I would be totally uncomfortable in that type of relationship so once I am made aware of that, I am bouncing out. A relationship is supposed to elevate you which means once there is discomfort, run!
I had this issue in my last relationship and although I tried to be nicer, it failed. It is a heavy burden and also unfair to you. Speaking from experience, please avoid this.
I wouldn't care, to be honest. I am with the man not his kids and I would understand too the reasons why they would hate me – I am not their mother.
I would be uncomfortable and it would make the relationship even more challenging.
