I have 2 step daughters, who were raised w/ no discipline, and use no manners and have no respect for their dad or myself. They do not clean up after themselves because they were raised w/ a maid at all times and they are total slobs. They talk back and their attitude is getting out of hand.Answer Question
The most important thing for you and your DH, S/O is to be consistent and on the same page. By that I mean that whoever sets the discipline, the other sticks with it and doesn't over ride it and present a united front. Reinforce to them that their behavior, actions and words are not acceptable and will not be tolerated. I'm sure that it's an adjustment for all of you, but it's really important that you and your DH remain in control and let them know that there are rules and when those rules are broken or disrespected, there will be consequences and enforce them.
