I've mentioned before about difficult child's jealousy and her propensity to pick at her brother relentlessly. She can be just so MEAN and cruel - I see personality disorder red flags. A close friend of ours died unexpectedly yesterday. husband and this friend were as close as brothers. He was hard on his luck and lived with us for 8 months last year, so my kids spent a lot of time around him. He lived modestly, loved dogs and children, and was especially close to my children - he saw them as his own since he never married or had kids. So what does difficult child do? She decides to try to make easy child 1 cry by talking about our friend and going on and on saying that he loved her more than he loved him, etc. I am just so... I don't know even how to express how that makes me feel. I am absolutely disgusted and appalled that she would use this as an opportunity to try to make easy child 1 upset. I mean, how low can you stoop?
