I understand completely. My stepson lives with his mother, the wicked witch, in another state, we only see him a couple of times a year. He doesn't call or text his dad unless he wants something and when he is here, he isn't happy unless he's shopping. He's almost 16 and has to be constantly entertained. He's a spoiled brat and his father makes it worse when he is here. He can't see the only reason his kid wants anything to do with him is so he will buy him something. I feel your pain. He's here now and you can cut the tension with a knife. I'm counting down the hours til he leaves tomorrow.

What's so bad about the kid? Is it like burning crosses in yards or something?

No one is asking anyine to pick a child over a girlfriend. For the love of God teach these children that the sun does not rise or set on their spoiled butts. Im tired of being the only decent motherly figure and get treated kike poo. I do what the bio mother should be doing but never has but let one thing not go their way and GOd forbid its on trouble is brewing.

I thought my step mom was a good person growing up. She made be believe my Mom was a bad person. I am grown now and I found out shortly before my Mom died just how much my step mom had brainwashed me. I hate her for that.

I have two step kids and it isnt easy. I have been fortunate to be able to get along for the most part with all parties involved. The boys have different moms so that has been a challenge in itself lol. I treat them just like I do my own child.

Its Very hard raising step kids. my step daughter likes to push & push. mind you shes 14 & 30lbs more than me but i still light up her behind. I have learned to pray alot when it comes to her. her bio mom is a piece of crap. havent seen or heard from her in 6 yrs.

I am a step mom as well as a bio mom. Children do what they are allowed to do. Does your husband, the child's father, allow his daughter to treat you this way? Is there ever any consequences or punishments for the disrespect and bad behavior? We don't spank & even if we did I wouldn't spank my step kids, but there are other alternative punishments depending on age. Time outs, taking away activities, extra chores, etc. For this to work your you and your husband would have to be a united front & consistent. Trust me the older children get the harder it becomes to fix behavior issues.

He is always outside or working he is hardly ever around. I have raised this child for the last 7 years, she is akmost 16 now and it just gets worse not to mention the grand parents. She was an only child when I met her father and an only grandchild.... now she has step brothers and sisters that get treated like crap by the step grand parents. How many of you on here commenting are in the same situation? I have loved and raised this child as my own while my own children have had to get treated like crap by her family. I have finally decided I want out but he promises things will change ...... I have so much anger how am I suppossed to stay? She lies to get people to feel sorry for her. She hates her bio mom until she has gotten busted for something she did here then runs to her lying because it always gets her out of trouble. When things dont go her way she wants to live with bio mom so dad pittys her she gets away with it t il next time shevgets mad same old crap.

If your children are being treated badly, I would def leave. Your children will resent you for letting this happen to them. Your husband will never change the Gparents either. I am in the same situation to some extent. My husband has cut ties with pretty much everyone in his family because of my kids. If those people treat your babies badly stay away from them, dont let them have the chance to make your kids feel bad, little kids never forget. He can see whoever he wants, you dont have to go around them. as for this teen age girl, he needs to get her butt in line before its too late. If things with your kids dont improve, move on. Nothing is worth your kids being mistreated.

Let me be a little clearer about the mistreatment of my kids. He (my Husband) is for the most part a good role model he has never really mistreated them. Occasionally he has let his daughter by with some things he has fussed at my children for. His parents have though..... blamed things on them that weren't true and taking her shopping and rubbing it in and lots more things that just erk me. I wanted to make that clear before someone takes it the wrong way im not a horrible mother I wouldn't let a man mistreat my children. I have stopped all contact with the step grandparents also.
