My step daughter and my son are toddlers and often take eachother's toys, hit, throw fits etc. The thing is, my hubby often takes his daughters side saying things like" He provoked her" or "he should learn to not play near her" etc. This gets us in arguments and on the ofense because we just recently became a family. I try to explain that now that we're a family...there cant be a divison. Any advice?Answer Question

There will always be that division. You are not her mother. And that will never change. So the idea that you should act like it and expect him to treat you like it is ludicrous. A parent protects their child. Why would you even think that he should side with your child against his own? And what kind of mother are you that you would want him to?
