He is not her step-father, you are not married to him. He has no say--you are the legal parent. It is your doing if he thinks he has a say. Where is her biological father, and if he's around what does he say about this? Do you live together? If so, you need boundaries real fast. Your child comes first--always--before a man. You need to totally communicate with him, fast, furious, and clearly. Your child is acting out--asking [you] for help.

I agree it's your job to discipline her not his.
