  • You need to move and your bf needs to handle the kids and the ex.

  • I'm sorry honey, but you can't discipline your bf kids.. IF you try, there will be HELL to pay!! Especially living next door to his ex.. I'd be moving.. Bf needs to be disciplining his kids.. IF you try then it will just cause problems between you and your bf.. Ohh, gosh I wish you lots of luck!!

  • There isn't much you can do just deal with it the best way or leave him for a man with no kids.
    I know I wouldn't be able to handle that. I wish you luck girl.

  • Move! and talk to him. He should be disciplining them not you. The rules have to apply to all the children.
