Holy Cow I am not the only one!

All I want to say is thank god and thank you!  I struggle almost daily I have been in a relationship where I have 2 children and he has 2 children and we have been doing this blended family bit for over 4 yrs now and it only seems to get harder and I keep asking myself what am I doing wrong?  It has to get easier right? 

Well I am not grateful that anyone else is struggling it is so nice to know that I am not the only one dealing with difficult stepchildren.  My stepdaughter is the exception to everything holy at my home she has the master bedroom, she can do no wrong and if she does it is ignored and just just dusted under the carpet while if my biological children were to do wrong it would be unacceptable.  I also have a stepson and I will say that he is a good boy for the most part he does have his moments but mostly he is a boy and they are typical.  However my daughter is 14 and my sd is 12 and yet the things that my sd does I still dont allow my dtr to do because I dont have final say in her life her mom and my other half do.  I feel like a live in servant to this child and it is nice to know that others have similar issues ....so thank you for this group and I look forward to any and all advice angel

Why does your 12 year old SD have the masterbedroom in your home?

Lmao!  No shit - is right - ;) 

Okay - in SD's potential defense though - are her parents divorced or did her mom die?  And in the case that her mom did die - was the master bedroom her room?

 I can get on board with being extra careful and extra sympathetic if a child loses his/her mom/dad.  But I wouldn't go as far as to let them squat in the masterbedroom "just because it was mommy's".  I'd be more apt to give her a scarf or a knick knack that was mom's...or even a picture.  But a ROOM?  NO.  That would be weird.  At that point, I would be calling a therapist.

thank you for all the love and support no the mom is still very much alive and involved in our lives... there is a shared custody arrangement so we have my sk every other week and every day after school till 430-5 when the mom comes and picks the kids up.  so No its not a matter of the mom being dead I am a very giving woman, my guy says he doesnt want the master because this is the house that he shared with his exwife and so his dtr should have it...

I had the master bedroom my dad slept in after he died and my mom remarried at this girls same age - up until they remodeled the house and made a new master bedroom in its place.
