I think you need to see a good local counsellor to work on this, help. Its not clear why you would dislike this child, and it may relate to aspects of the child's behaviour, which you can learn how to shape and change for the better ; or to problems within yourself, which you can similarly learn to deal wioth, once the oriogins of these feelings have been clarified
