I am married to a wonderful man he has 2 other children from a previous marriage (they're teenagers now) we have two children 6 & 8. My question is his ex married a man that is not all that great he is an alcoholic and she drinks as well but I don't get it she is hardly ever home she works and parties on the wkend anyway as the years went by her kids did well in school or enough to pass and me that I am a sahm my kids are not following directions or not listening where did I go wrong I work with my kids with their studies and I do get it why is this happening I keep my thoughts to myself about everything except for now in CM. Help me understand this.
My kids are no dummies they are smart kids but why don't they show it they listen to their dad.

Sounds like they aren't applying themselves. My son is the same way at times. I make him accountable. I will help him as much as possible but if he refuses to do his homework or follow directions, I let him take the consequences at school.
