The biological mother is not really in the picture. She is an addict of two major addictions. I have a daughter that is 13 and want to raise her well and when I try to discipline, give rules, chores, and curfew to my step daughters they just scream at me. They have never had discipline or structure before and their father is never home because he is a workaholic. I think because now that I am the stay at home mother of four kids now I should be the authoritive parent and discipliner. Please help me cuz it is stressing me out. These kids need help before it is too late.Answer Question

I'd be putting a foot down with the husband. If you are expected to care for HIS children then I would damn make sure that those children did as I said. If the 2 of you don't get things straight then you ill have nothing but issues. Marriage is a partnership, if he doesn't want a partner and doesn't help and support you....I know I wouldn't put up with it.
I can understand where the kids never had structure.....but they could now. Sit the man down and tell him, you're wither with me or against me. Pick a side because I will not be treated this way any longer by you or your kids.
