I read a post of a lady who was fed up with her 8 year old step son that her husband has custody of is STEALING their food. First off how is he stealing their food?All my food in my house is for my kids to feel free to have.When they are hungry I allow them to eat of course not exorbit wasteful amounts.But what is the kid on rations?Sounds like a concentration camp?I think there is bigger issues of resentment/jealousy here and I feel sorry for the child.He maybe eating for comfort because he has a resentful/jealous step mother.Sad but I was pondering this.Answer Question

The step mom should let the boy eat (with in limits) but I don't think she is doing this to the child bc she is resentful and jealous. I don't get it.
It sounds like you might be resentful and jealous...could you be.
Being a sm is very hard work she has to take all what the bm dishes out so sm better be ready but handle as an adult. Let the kids EAT all they want.

I had a friend when I was young and her mother made her ask for everything, even a drink of water. I was not raised that way, I was free to eat and drink as I needed/wanted. But if there are certain things that he shouldn't have then maybe she should set up boundaries and let him know what he can and can't have in the kitchen. Perhaps he and daddy can go to the store to get him his own snacks.
