SD is friends with another little girl that lives with her dad and SM. The dad works out of town most of the time, leaving the SM in charge of handling everything. The BM is completely absent from the picture.
Now, I know how tough things can be as CSM. I've had my various resentments over the years toward DH when I felt overwhelmed or toward BM when she could have stepped up and chose not to. It's understandable to me that this little girl's SM may harbor similar feelings. I sympathize with her general position. BUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She's fucking psychotic.
The BD will be in town next weekend, and we will cross paths. My DH won't be in town or he'd probably say something because he's completely disgusted with what he's seen. I'm disgusted. The way SM treats the child is emotionally and pscyhologically abusive. The child walks on eggshells. My dealings with SM are limited and on a professional level, but I've just about had it with this self-centered bitch that takes everything out on the kid. She threw herself a neat little tantrum last night, blaming the kid of course, that caught several onlookers in the middle either as unwilling messengers or rescuers. That's kind of a final straw for me. You don't wander onto my turf verbally abusing a child and treating a bunch of other folks like worthless peons.
I want to get hold of dad and ask him, "WTF????" On one hand, he may take this EC away from his kid removing her from any further interaction with my SD, me, or other people who've befriended her, grown to care for her, and sheltered her at their houses during periods when he is gone and SM is pissing and moaning about how horrible it is to put up with this child all the time. (I don't even know if he knows his daughter is routinely kicked out of the house.) I do know if I confront SM, she'll pull her victim shit and ensure the kid is isolated. On the other hand, BD himself has made some negative comments about SM alluding to similar behavior. I wonder if he's on the fence about believing his child versus his wife. His wife is an evil hag. Anyhow...
Butt in or stay out? I'm typically a "stay out" gal, but this.... I really want to ask him, "WTF is going on in your house?????"
