Why does the BM trying to get all the credit even though she did not do crap?

The exwive's dad paid for her daughter's (my sd) new vehicle, but yet she is trying to make it sound like she is the one that came up with the money (5,000) and is asking for more money on (C/S). Why does she act as though she doesn't have money (atleast to the kids she says this) but yet she calls and wants this and that. (mostly money)
We pay the child support we are suppose to what more does she want.
We wanted to help out too for a vehicle but times are so hard as for everyone too and of course since she is on the recieving end (getting checks) it is easy for her to want more and ask for whatever. But yet some how her dad helped her out. Kind of makes you wonder where and what is going on with the c/s (some of it atleast)

We want to help (my sd his dd) but money wise this is all we can afford and she don't understand that (the ex) she is being a real witch :(

  • A parent does not owe their child a car. Let the girl work for her own car!

  • You or your husband never have to talk to the ex. If the child is old enough to drive then it's really easy not to talk to her. She can't call and ask for money. It's great they got her a car but that was a gift from them. You have no reason to talk to her about it of justify why you didn't help pay or buy her a car yourself.

  • Why does it matter who came up with the money for the car? You sound bitter because your husband has to pay child support. Get over it, you married a man with children now you have to deal with him paying for his responsibilities. You have two choices, get use to him paying child support OR find someone who doesn't have kids.

  • Many women use children as a source of income for themselves by using them. Men should be careful with these kinds of women with children. They entrap men by having children.

  • Just pay what you have to. Who cares about bm? Let her take credit if it makes her feel better in life.

  • Why pay ANYTHING?????????????????? Why can't kids today do without until they EARN the money to buy their own???????????? Don't give a dime, the decision was BM's, let her pay. She does not have the right to spend your husbands money.
