I am desperate for answers suggestions or even just comfort!
I have a 7 year old step daughter. Her bio mom is deceased. I have been her mother figure for four years. She is so mouthy and disrespectful toward me. Tells me things like "i hate you" "your not my mom" "i dont have to listen to you" "shut up" "leave me alone" "i want my daddy, Im telling him to move away from you".
I know some of these things seem like normal kids talking back. My 9 year old boy doesn't talk like this and if he did i honestly would slap him. However I can't/won't slap her because she makes it a bigger deal than what it is and will lie. So i leave that up to her dad. When i just texted him (he is at work) and told him he has to do something about the way she talks to me, He says my 9 year old boy is the same way.
Am I crazy?> Do i over look my boy doing this because he is mine? Is my hubby just taking the blame off his "perfect" daughter? What do I do? How do I handle a mouthy child? I told her to just go to her room and she tells me I don't have to listen to you! Help!!!!
My feelings are so confused with hurt and anger toward both her and my husband.
