Feel trapped.

by Shannom

I recently got married 2 days after my son was born in December. I had been with his father just shy of 2 years. We both had 2 kids coming in to the relationship but only my 7 year old son and his 11 year old daughter live with us and of course our baby.

Ever since i had the baby i feel like him and his daughter think i'm their maid and cook and any thing else they want to order around and treat like shit. He doesn't discipline and undermines me with my own son when i discipline him. His daughter is very rude and spoiled. Talking to him doesn't change anything.

I don't want the baby to not have his dad but i really just feel hate towards my husband..the feelings of love are so far and few between anymore because of his actions.

"You gave us counseling without making either one of us feel that you were taking sides.
You always maintained your impartiality with us. You encouraged Rita to be more assertive in stating what she wanted to get from your counseling sessions, as well as what she wanted to get from the relationship.
You taught both of us better communication between ourselves, which lead to an emotional comfort level between us that didn't exist before.
You took control of the direction of the session if things were not moving along.
Thanks so much
for helping us."
