Her boyfriend had six children, four of whom were his own: a 17-year-old son, a 15-year-old daughter, a 14-year-old son, and a 7-year-old son. The older kids decided how they split their time between their parents, while the youngest was only with them two days a week.

She got along with her boyfriend’s children. She said, “I think I get along okay with his kids, and I actually enjoy spending time with them.” However, some things they did bothered her.

The children often used her things without asking. They even ate the food she bought for herself, even after she told them it was hers. The daughter, especially, used the main bathroom but never cleaned up after herself and used her products without permission.

Since he wasn’t around, his three teens spent the night at his place. “I mostly did my own thing. I cooked dinner for myself, and when I was almost done, two of the kids and one of their friends entered the kitchen. The daughter asked why I didn’t ask if they wanted food. I said they know how to take care of themselves, and I’m not their cook,” she explained.

Later, the teenager ended up preparing dinner for her brothers and her friend. Afterward, she informed her that she had cleaned up after their meal but hadn’t cleaned up hers.  This lady reassured her that it was alright and that she didn’t expect her to do so.

She then spoke to the teenager about her feelings. She explained that she didn’t want to be a stepmom, she just wanted to be treated like a roommate. She wanted her belongings and space to be respected. She also didn’t want to cook or clean for her, but she wasn’t expecting her to do things for her either.

She eventually told her father about the conversation. Her boyfriend then spoke to her and disagreed with her perspective. He felt that not wanting to be a parent was different from treating his children like roommates. He mentioned that his kids often cooked for themselves and helped each other out.

Was She Wrong in Her Opinion?

He had a different viewpoint. He believed that her attitude might indicate she didn’t want to be part of his family at all, not just that she didn’t want to be a parent to his kids. But she knew that she liked spending time with the kids but she just didn’t want to feel like a maid. 

People Responded

One person said, “So he wants you to take on the responsibility of a stepmom but none of the authority of a stepmom. Oh, no.”

Someone else said, “Why did you decide that dating a man with SIX CHILDREN is a good idea if you don’t want to be a stepmom? I’m genuinely having a hard time understanding it.”
