My boyfriends ex wife is not very good at doing the whole mother thing and her new husband doesn't really get it either.
She lets her kids stay sick during the week she has them and then send them to us sick and un-showered. She spends no time doing homework with the oldest or even reading to her first grader. I am at my wits end with how she raises these kids. She is not very sanitary and considers ensure an ok thing to constantly give her kids and take out is always whats for dinner.
I feel my step kids think they have it so bad when they are here for the weekend. What can I do??

Bull shit, If you're an active part of thier lives & they are residing in your home on the when they see thier father, they are your steps, unless you don't consider them that way which clearly you do. I'm a SM, not married to my SS's Dad but, am the primary female (he lives with us full time) and caregiver in his life, Dad's working, I'm at home. Don't let ignorant bitter people tell you what you are: if they feel like your steps refer to them that way.
The only thing that can be done in your situation OP, is for Dad to go for Full or joint custody to limit the BM's time with kids. Also, just be there for them the best way you can. GL.
