My 8 year old SD has been with us full time for a year, 0 contact with BM. She has a lot of behavior problems. She takes ADHD meds, but is still beyond out of control I think a lot of it is just I am a brat and want my way. My husband and I are usually on the same page, but at the end of the day i know he feels guilty for missing a lot of her early life because he was gone in the military so he often thinks I am too hard on her. She is extremely manipulative and lies constantly. She bullys kids at school and just acts like a brat and I am fed up. I wish I could have a fun loving relationship with her but I want nothing to do with her. Everyday it is the same thing, she is bad, then says how much she loves us and how sorry she is, then the next day it is the same story. I don't know what to do, sometimes I wish she would go away so I could have the life I loved back instead of this stress filled existence and feeling like I try so hard to help her and she doesn't care, and doesn't actually want to change, what do I do??
