She is married with 1 child, also having to raise his other 2 kids from a previous marraige. She is having a REALLY hard time dealing with the situation. The boys on a daily basis give her a hard time because she is not their mother (their mother refuses to be a mother bouncing from house to house & doesnt want to get a job). Everyday is a constant battle for her. Homework time, dinner, bath and bedtime and everything in between. The boys are failing in school and she doesnt know what to do. They are rude & ungrateful to her,mouthy and disrespectful & when she tells her husband she cant do this anymore and she feels like she is drowning all he has to say is "I'm sorry you feel that way." She thinks he doesnt care. She is planning on leaving him, but doesnt want to... She just wants him to understand what she is going through and help her. She wants her daughter to have both mother and her father in the home. Any suggestions?

it sounds like he needs to take some time off of work to work, rearrange his schedule or devote more time on his days off with his children on discipline. If their Mother was not stable in providing a home for them, she may not have been stable in instilling proper discipline, manners in them and now that he has taken over this responsibility he is not there to actually enforce it, and placing it solely on their now Step Mother to do so is not working. They need their Father there to lay down the rules full force, so they will know to respect their Stepmom
