All you can do is just do what you're doing as a good father and cover all bases. Dont let Uncle get near them.EVER. Watch over them like a hawk. Your children are only gonna be kids once and dont let Uncle ruin their childhood . Parents are supposed to stand guard to their kids.

Apart from the other responses, I would like to answer a specific part: You say that you talk about bounderies and that they laugh it off or downplay it. In my experience (in another subject, but I wanted to make sure they understood what my stance was) they will keep doing that for as long as you allow it.

I know life can be thought but don't let it take away the goodness of your heart. See, we live in a world that is ruled by social conventions were if you are born a girl you have to be girl or if you are a boy you have to be a boy and there's people that don't have the capacity to see it any other way sometimes you have to go with the flow even though it's ...

I'm 40 now, and I do have the diagnoses, but I got severely mentally ill about 10 years ago. I've been hospitalized over 20, and they were kind of just throwing diagnoses at the wall to see if anything stuck. I have an Asperger's diagnosis and a schizoaffective diagnosis and I'm skeptical of both of those. I'm most certainly borderline and CPTSD is accurate ...
