I don't feel that way about my stepson. I have known him since he was 2 and I feel like his parent most of the time. His mom doesn't care about him at all. She doesn't call or come to see him. We got custody of him a year ago because she was abusing him(and her husband was to). The transition to him living here was hard because he took that abusive behavior he learned and used it on his brothers. THAT was the hardest for me. To see my kids suffer because his mother is a... well I won't go there. But things have gotten SO much better. I have worked really hard with him this past year and he has really changed. I don't think I ever resented him or disliked him, but it was hard.

Try spending some one on one time with your DH's kids. It will help you build a stronger relationship.
