  • Depends on if your so is doing anything about it. The step child shouldnt get what they want and be allowed to put you through hell so then they can laugh when they make you leave. the so should be alying down the law and making his/her child show somw respect to you.

  • How much do you put up with your own? There should be no differences

  • I think it is irresponsible to marry someone if you can't get along with their kids and treat them as your own. You (I hope) would never give up on or walk out on your own kids, so doing it to "his" kids shouldn't be an option either.

  • You're talking about leaving your husband over this kid? It must be pretty bad, I'm sorry. I bet he doesn't agree with you about how to deal with the kid. Am I right. I'd imagine the problem isn't the kid, it's his/her dad. If you two were on the same page, the kid wouldn't be able to get away with as much and the behavior would improve slowly. I'm thinking you two aren't so the behavior is escalating. Good luck with that. Yeech!
