jasmin is 15 and my stepdaughter......since the moment I met her i fell in love with her. She was a sweet young lady who needed alot of love! Her mom is not in her life too much. Jasmin found love letters that her mom was writing to a guy that was in jail and that her mom was seeing so she showed them to her dad. So in a way i think her mom holds resentment towards her because she busted her. Jasmin started acting up in school so mom called my hubby and asked if he could bring her to our house to see if he could set her straight.
Jasmin was thrilled. Since I met her she would talk about living with her dad. I didnt really know her I mean you dont really get to know someone until you live with them. She moved in and lord have mercy! She is a sweetie but doesnt like to help out around the house, she leaves her clothes laying around, sometimes she leaves her undergarments in the restroom..........sigh....i dont mind having her around i feel that she needs alot of attention. we got a townhome that had 4 bedrooms so i gave her her own room. She cleaned it once or twice........she HATES washing dishes. but if she gets invited to go somewhere she is ready.....
Here is the dilema..........I am strict with my kids and I do not feel that because she needs to be loved and needs extra TLC she should be able to get away with these things. My kids get grounded if they do not clean their room, they get privilages taken away and my hubby "feels bad for her" and he talks to her and she says that she will help out and then she stops. If she was my daughter I would run a much tighter ship with her. I feel like im strict with her but like there are things that she needs to take care of she isnt a baby! She kept complaining of stomach pain so we took her into the ER because she said she had been asking her mom to take her and she hadnt taken her they gave her antibiotics and she hasnt been drininking them she keeps saying she has but this weekend she spent it with my sister I was in the hospital and she left them at home she needs to take them 4 times a day. So things like this if she is in pain why doesnt she take them? ******I have a 10 year old son who is autistic and he gives me the bottle to give him his medicine every night he doesnt forget!! ******she likes to be babied but I feel that my dh is too easy on her...............someone please HELP!! I have talked to him and he says he is going to get strict but he doesnt
