My step sister that is.... We met when she was in high school ( I am older) but she wouldnt really ahve anything to do with me and my family because I guess she was still upset that her dad left her mother for my mom.
She got pregnant right out of high school, and then had her second about 2 years ago, and I had my first 8 months ago...so we have tried to get together now, but I am finding it very hard to have a relationship with her because I feel badly about her kids.
She is WAY WAY WAY to over protective of her kids, she will only let her mom or her grandma babysit them, she never goes out without them, she wont let her daughter ( 4 years old ) sleep over anywhere, and is even going to wait a whole year before sending her to kindergarten ( her 5th birthday meets the deadline to go into kindergarten this year) .... and we all know it is because of the way she is, that she isnt sending her this year. Her and her husband is even struggling money wise but she wont get a job because she wont leave her kids with someone....
It is just so frustrating !

Wow, so caring about your children's well being is "ruining their lives" now? Nobody but my grandma has watched my kids. And I can count the amount of times on one hand. They are MY children, I raise them. Being a mom means it's time to sacrifice my life for my children. So yeah, I don't go out without my kids because nobody takes better care of them.

I guess I am kind of like ur SS. i want to spend all my time with my kids and only my MIL and my neighbor ever keep them over night. And both houses are on the same block as me. I never let my kids with anyone (even for a night) before they were 6! I was a little neurotic. even when it comes to sleepovers I let them have them at home but not at others house. my husband says I need to 'let go" but they are only young once.
