echomomm : yes, thank you. I wouldn’t say anything about the touching in front of her. It’s just so weird and uncomfortable. I asked him how he would feel if my dad slapped my ass every time we were together, and he said “your dad can do whatever he wants, I don’t care.” Then I asked, “well what if your sister’s dad was doing it to her in front of you? Wouldn’t that be weird, creepy? You’d kill him” The part that bothers me most about it, I think, is that it’s just happening more and more often and she’s getting more clingy. She’ll grab him and walk arm-in-arm when we’re all out in public, she makes comments if me and him are holding hands like she’s jealous, she’ll hang her body all over him and tell him she needs him to tell her he loves her. Weird shit.
And yes, I know we need to just let her throw her tantrum and be mad when things happen in the future. It’s just hard to make him realize that everything will be ok if we say no. She likes to lash out and make him feel bad, like she did everything for him growing up (isn’t that part of having kids, raising kids?) So now he owes her. It’s strange to me because my parents would never ask me for a dime. She’ll even explain to me how much she did for him to try to justify everything. I always want to say…”yeah, isn’t that what you sign up for when you decide to have kids?”
