I just don't feel as if I can possible keep doing this. First off I was raised in a blended family and it was wonderful. My parents were a team and we were all happy. So when I met me DH I thought Hey I can do this! Well 5yrs later and I don't feel like I can mentally keep doing this. We have sole custody of my two SS. They have zero contact with BM. But they are just not listening. We have always had the same rules and consequences. They REFUSE to do their chores and its really hard. We have tried everything. My DH and our two biological children are great. They do their chores and listen. They work REALLY hard to get their points for their special rewards. But my two SS don't care. I can see where its affecting my DS DD because they have started sleeping in my bed again, which is really hard because I am currently 6months pregnant. Basically I am just needing to vent, because I don't know what to do anymore.
