How do you deal with a Biological Mother who lies to your Step-Children about you?
My SO and I didn't even know each other until after he divorced his ex-wife, but since him and I got together 3 years ago, she has been telling their kids that their dad was cheating on her with me, and that I'm the reason that they got divorced. She has told the kids that they aren't allowed to like me, and that "everybody hates me." She tells them that their dad cares more about me than he does them. (Usually after he's refused to give HER what she wants...) Unfortunantly, that's only the begining... My SO has stood up for me when necessary, but it only made her do it more, so we've resorted to ignoring all of her comments, and dealing with the kids' confusion and comments as they come, and I think that they're finally realizing who means well, and who doesn't... When we had them last week, they told me "You're the best mommy ever!" However, this morning, my SO's ex texted him wanting money, saying "I know your little GF doesn't work, and the load is on you, but..." 1) I do work. 2) I stayed home with the kids over Spring Break, and that's where she got that idea from. For some reason, her comment pushed me over the edge. I don't want to put my SO in the middle of anything, but I'm getting so sick of biting my tongue. I know that confronting her isn't going to change ANYTHING, but I really want to kindly give her a piece of my mind! Has anybody else dealt with this? How should I deal with this?
