  • Your question is really vague.. But just remember their your husbands blood. They are his child(ren). If it becomes to bad while they are visiting, go to the store or whatever and take a breather. It's hard to try to raise someone else's child(ren). But you obv love your husband, so all you can do is pretty much deal with it.

  • Realize they are not the enemy. Remember their world was blown apart by their parents and they did not ask for you to be in their lives. They need patience, love and understanding. You can not show anger towards their mom no matter if she is a bi%ch or not. They need to have a safe home to be in and it is about them. Their dad should put them first they were in his life first. You need to learn to not be resentful of that. You chose to marry a man with kids and need to learn to deal with it.
