I secretly hate my step daughter
All this time I really felt alone with my anger and was embarrassed to tell anyone how I really felt about my 10 yr old step daughter. She lies, hides grown up clothes and everything that she is banned from using and she steals. She doesn't know how to communicate and I've tried to be close to her. I have a 10 yr old son and him and I are very close. He's so opposite from her that she gets jealous and tries to get him in trouble. I tell him not to play with her and she tells her dad he doesn't like her. Her dad knows how she is and blows off her actions as if they are nothing. I'm afraid of her teenage years. Her real mom is living in a car and does drugs. Tells my step daughter all her problems and she brings that here to our home. I'm resenting my step daughter so much and don't even like looking at her, taking care of her when I just recently lost my dad. I have enough on my plate w/o this little lying sneak add on to it. I wish at least her grandparents take her for the summer. No one wants her so I'm stuck acting like her biological parent. I'm ready to move back home. I feel helpless and needed to vent. So, thank you! Btw, she's been lying, stealing and hiding things for about 2 years. I'm not gonna waste my breath anymore by talking to her about right and wrong stuff.
