My friend was telling me about an incident that happened while her kids were at their dad's house for Christmas break and I was wondering how other moms deal with their stepkids.
Her youngest, 3, has severe eczema and has to have a special lotion applied after every bath or he gets really nasty scabs from the eczema. Well she told her ex about the eczema and left him the meds over the two week stay with dad. When she picks him up at the end of the two weeks his little body is covered in eczema scabs and required steroids and antibiotics to heal. Well Monday she picked the kids up from dads scheduled visitation and was talking to his new wife about it and she was like I noticed it one night after a bath and thought it was eczema but she didn't do anything about it. To top it all off she is a licensed RN so she should have known better. She also doesn't enforce the same rules for her step kids as she does for her own children in regards to meal times and bedtimes making it a lot harder when my friend picks the kids up from visits.
Okay so stepmoms do you enforce the household rules for the stepkids or do you believe it is the biological parents responsibility to parent the children?
