Hi, Im Angie. I have 3 kids. DD12,DS 17,& SD 7. I have been with DH for 2 years now.I dont even know where to start, I dont mean to sound like a horrible person right from the start, but EVERYTHING seems to ALWAYS be about my SD. All the small issues that we had before we lived together full time seem to have gotten worse instead of better. Age appropriate behavior, rules, tantrums,... My DH has a hard time enforcing ANY rules on SD and doesnt back me up right away if try to enforce rules and by the time he does, I just look like the bad guy. I dont know how to get him to understand why SD cant do all the things her older siblings get to do. It has gotten to the point where I have had to search the neighborhood for her as she does not come home when it starts to get dark or stay where she is supposed to be playing, failing grades, tantums that include kicking the walls and throwing things! We have full custody of her and she she gets off the bus at 2:30, it takes almost 3 hours most afternoons to get her 2nd grade homework done : ( leaving me mentaly and emotionally exhausted. When DH gets home she plays the Daddys girl card, she will even admit the bad behavior and gets NO reaction or punishment from DH. I dont know weather to be mad or hurt. I feel like I have no time or energy left for my own children. Family outings are almost non existant as SD makes them misserable whining and demanding. We have been to parent teacher confrences and counciling a few times, but DH seems to find an excuse for bad behavior no matter who reccognises it. Im exhausted and starting to doubt DH or SD REALLY want to be a blended family. Im sure there are parts I left out, feel free to ask or comment, as im feeling lost.
