Me and my husband have been married for 6 yrs. I had a son, and he had a daughter coming into the relationship. Three years after we got together we had a son together. I don't treat any of them different, they are all equal no step or anything like that. Her mom passed away when she was 2, and my son's father has been out of his life for maybe 3 yrs, so therefore we are a faimly with no interuptions of other parents. Every time she gets mad or I correct her she will say the same thing over and over. when i do the same with Tyler he doesnt say any thing, plus she assumes that she gets the blame for everything even though she did , she dont see it that way. Any suggestions, PLEASE!Answer Question

I teach 6th grade and regularly hear from parents that their kids hate them. I also hear from the kids how much they hate thier parents. You being a step mom might not have much to do with it. I'd tell her you found the note (unless you were snooping, then she'll REALY hate you) and it hurt your feelings. Don't scold her or be mad, just tell her you love her and you hope that was written on a bad day.
It 100% normal for kids that age to think they are being treated unfairly. It's actually a developmental stage. As they become more independent they also become so self centered that can't understand other people's perspectives.
Just try your best to praise her when she's being good so she realizes you don't ride her all time. It also might not hurt to point out to her when the other kids get punished, just so she gets the idea that all of them have rules.
