Unhappy Mom problems - February 29th 2016, 03:24 AM

Okay so lately my mother has been getting angry with my brother. IT's mostly cause of our step mother. So she got angry with him today cause he took a picture of her, hugging her. My mom starts to yell at him, saying that he can go live with her if she loved her more than her. This really irritates me. Cause before my brother was living with us, she got angry with me. Why? Same reason of course. She finally stopped getting angry with me when I had finally told my step mom i can't take pics with her. I can't hug her or be close to her. My mom is okay with me hugging my dad. She has been saying this to me before that "She's not your family!" and now she's saying that to my brother. This just gets me so angry that, I have to always remind my step mom i can't take pics of her. IF we even do take pics, I gotta tell her to not post it cause I'm terrified of my mother finding out. And honestly I feel bad for telling my step mom cause she just wants to take a picture of me and my bro but my mom has to always ruin the mood and make her feel bad and make us feel bad. I honestly dunno what to do. What can I do? Cause I am so sick of this childish attitude she is giving us. She's acting like a complete crazy, over attached girlfriend.

I think a lot of parents have trouble with step parents because they feel like their children might like their step parents more than their biological ones. And, usually, children of divorced parents do have a favorite house they stay at, assuming both biological parents have custody at one point or another.

I don't think it's fair for you or your brother to be unable to take pictures with your step mom for fear of what your mom will do. As long as you're comfortable taking pictures with your step mom, I don't see a problem with it. If your mom doesn't like that, that's on her. That's her issue. I think maybe you should sit down with your mom and explain that you and your brother do love her, but would like to have a relationship with your step mom and would like to do things such as taking pictures together, or hugging each other, without comment from your mom. Maybe you can suggest that she blocks your dad and step mom on social media or deactivates her accounts all together if it bothers her that much.
