How to deal with my negative husband not loving his stepchildren
I remarried 10 years ago and brought 2 children with me. I had a 3rd child with my 2nd husband. This husband is negative, critical and unforgiving by nature of his upbringing. So, when my oldest 2 children made mistakes he hasn't learned to forgive them and keep loving them. They are teenagers by now and have not felt his love for many years. I have asked him to give them attention or at least talk to them. He starts off with good intentions, but it doesn't last, even my kids can see his lack of effort. In addition, my youngest is developing low self esteem from all the negative statements and thinks his Dad is always mad at him. I have sent him advice articles from the internet hoping that he'll read them and try to do better, but I don't know if he really reads them or not. Help, I don't know what else to do.
