Does she live with you?

Is Mum still around? Is she seeing anyone? Do you get on? What does she say about it?

Has her behaviour changed anywhere else or just at yours?

What is the consequence for her behaving like this?

I hated my dads girlfriend from about the same age,  my mum had died 2 years earlier and I felt my dad had moved on and was replacing her which I couldn’t do. In short I missed my mum and blamed her because my dad didn’t seem to miss her anymore. But at the time I couldn’t see that and genuinely believed she was the devil.

My little brother being born really messed me up but I became withdrawn and stopped engaging with them as I felt totally pushed out of my dad’s life by his arrival.  I stopped hating her as I got older.

But I would have expected my dad to go nuclear if I’d screamed, shouted and told lies. My stereo and tv would have been out of my room before I could blink and that stopped me doing it. What do you do when she acts out?
