Competitive Feelings Toward StepChildren

Reader Submitted Discussion Topic:

Does anyone else feel competitive toward her step-daughters?

This question was left in the comment section and is obviously being expressed by a very frustrated mother.

I can't say that I've felt competition within our own family dynamics but I certainly feel some frustrations with the outside influences.

I'm so bent on being fair to all our children and when extended family members don't respect that "boundary" it makes me feel like I have to pick up the slack from their deficiencies. So competitive feelings come into play in that area once in a while.

i must be having tech difficulties. I can't get the "email me" link to open. Nor, can I get my name to link properly to my site/contact details.

i'm trying to sign on in the "other" category, and when I first do it, it works, but then the link slips. Google is also not letting me sign on. i'll use the comment function to connect, and you can delete the comment once you've got the details...any ideas on the tech side? htt
