His kids hate me!

All Woman

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.
