I am a stepmom to an 11 year old girl. My husband has full custody of her and has since before we were married. I have been in her life from birth and have been her stepmom since she was 5. I have a 17 year old son and a 4 month old son with my husband. My 17 year old had an issue with my husband at first, but got over it quickly. She has had a problem with me the whole time we've been together. I am strict when it comes to the rules of the home. Her rules are no different than those of my oldest. She lies about me and her dad to others. I have tried numerous times to spend girl time with her. I also encourage one on one time with her and her dad. She is about to have to go live with her mom because she won't stop acting out. I won't allow her to be with me without my husband now because I'm afraid of what she'll lie about. I have 2 kids of my own to think about. I don't want her to think her dad is choosing me over her. Truth is he's choosing his family over her lies. She is already in counseling and talks to our pastor often. Will this ever get better? I've already moved out once because of her and lived apart for over a year.
