My husband just likes to yell and sometimes ground. Never consistant. She is already taking two freshmen classes that she flunked last year over this year. She is 15 almost 16 and doesn't care about her grades at all. I know she can do it if she tries but she doesn't put any effort into it. What can I do as a step parent besides inform her dad about her grades? She live full time with us and her mom is in another state and didn't even graduate high school herself.
She thinks that I am going to let my DS get away with a lot when he gets older. He is 5 right now. I let her know this weekend when an oportunity popped up that she has it easy with her dad concerning her grades and that my DS would be grounded until his were brought up. I was raised in a very strict military family.
