My SO has two boys (6 and 8 yrs old) from a previous relationship. Well their mom is constantly undermining his authority when they are with her. Telling them stuff like "even if daddy says it's okay, it's not." She is teaching them that he doesn't know what he's talking about and she is the boss, not him. Also, every time she calls the boys to talk to them, they go in the other room and tell her everything that they think he's done wrong that weekend. We are expecting our first baby together in Feb. and just the other day, she says to me things like "he's lazy" and "if he tells you he knows what he is talking about with the baby, he doesn't". And says this stuff right in front of the kids! I'm afraid as they get older they will not respect him at all because of what she is doing. I don't know what to do, I don't want to be on bad terms with her and make everything weird. Also, I don't think it is really my place to say anything. Any advice on how to show the kids the right way to see their dad without causing drama???
