Ok so right now my DD and I live with my step sons and their mom. Well the thing is is that I am home all day and make sure the boys eat well and not too much and at a healthy time etc etc. Well whenever I'm not home their mother feeds them crap. I mean I bought pork chops for her to make last night because I wasn't going to be home. They said she took them to Quickcheck and got them subs and slushies. My boys are overweight(Iwonder why) and I worry about their health when I move out! Also she is so lazy. Listen she is my friend, we co-parent because the kids dad is not here right now so whatever. But when she's home she's slepping. I'm not kidding 4 PM she's sleeping. The house is so cluttered and I clean the surface you know dishes floors etc etc but there are papers everywhere, broken things because she wont throw anything out! I can't do it it's not my stuff. I know I shouldn't complain and I'm not really what should I doAnswer Question

Have you considered getting your own place, it sounds like you are going above and beyond to make sure everyone is okay and she's not meeting her end of the bargain. If moving out is not an option for whatever reason maybe you can tell her it's an ultimatum and explain to her everything you do to try to make the best out the situation and if things don't improve you will have no other option. Always make sure that you and your kids are taken care of first, she is an adult and should be the one accountable for the welfare of her children not just you alone. I think it's great what you're doing but yes something has to change.
