My step daughter got in trouble for doing things she shouldn't have. I feel that she needs to earn our trust back but husband thinks that there is no real way to EARN trust back...so he gives her all the freedom she had before. I think hes asking for trouble!! but maybe I am wrong...please help!!Answer Question

If she got into trouble with the privileges she had, then she is clearly not responsible enough to have them. Take them away for a set amount of time. If she stays out of trouble, then slowly give her the priviliges back. (i.e. Take away cell phone, computer use, tv time, curfew). If she stays out of trouble for a week, she gets her cell phone back. Two weeks, she gets the computer back, etc. Explain that these things are privelegs, not rights. If she can't handle them, they might be taken away permanently.

Your stepdaughter is going to have to prove to you through her actions that she deservesyour trust. This will not happen over night it will take some time. As for your husband, this is his daughter and he is doing what he feels best. Your husband needs to respect your feelings in this matter because you are apart of the girls life. Talk to your husband of your feelings, try not to allow his daughter ruin your relashionship.
