My husband has joint custody of his 2 daughters. They are 7 and 9. I am a teacher therefore I have off summers and holiday breaks. On the days he has possession of the children should I be responsible for watching them when he is at work? This is how our schedule with his daughters work. One week we have them Monday, Tuesday, friday, saturday and Sunday. Then the next week we have them Wednesday and Thursday. Then it switches back to the first one again and on and on like that. Should I be responsible for watching them on his days since I am not their biological mother? Please help me with this!!!!!!Answer Question

Possession of them? Sounds like a drug or something.... But I would say its up to you guys to make the decision and if he wants you to help him out I would think its your responsibility as his wife.

"possession" the wording is a bit odd.
Yes... to do otherwise would make the girls feel unwelcome. When you married him you knew he had kids... it would be rather unloving of you to do anything but embrace them... or at least make hubs and kids feel like you are embracing them.

Possession? Really? Is that how you see the girls? As possessions?
Anyway, YES you are responsible for watching them ... did you miss the MOTHER part of Step-Mother?
