See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My stepdaughterâ€™s BM is overwhelming. Iâ€™m not exactly sure what the best way to handle her is. She is constantly obsessing over what we do with SD, and not in a healthy â€śIâ€™m a mom and I am concernedâ€ť kind of way. She looks for things to scream about. And I do literally mean scream. At any given moment, she will call myself of DH and scream and cuss and hang up on us, usually about absolutely nothing. One of her latest rants was that we werenâ€™t forcing SD to sleep in her own room because she was afraid. We were building her a pallet on the floor and allowing her to sleep in our room. I could understand BMâ€™s frustration; except she lets my SD sleep in bed with her and her new husband (my SD is almost 6 years old). She said she didnâ€™t know how we could LIVE with ourselves knowing our daughter was on the floor. Other times, she wants to be my best friends. If something doesnâ€™t go her way, she screams about us never seeing SD again, and that sheâ€™s bringing us to court to have all of our rights taken away. Sheâ€™s very manipulative. She never has SD best interests in mind (my 5 y/o SD has a FACEBOOK of all things). Any time anything good happens in our lives (moving into a new home, getting a pay raise, ect) things get REALLY bad for us because of BM. Sheâ€™s had CPS called on her for cutting her current husband with a knife in front of our SD, and other reasons, but of course nothing gets taken care of. I could go on and on. Any suggestions? I hate this Jekyll and Hyde situation.
