Welcome! Glad to see you here.

Quoting dmersing:

Hello ladies, 

I am a 60 year old widow with a daughter and granddaughter. I am a psychic medium from Pittsburgh, PA and have been doing this work for 45 years. I was born gifted. I went to the gym earlier today, have a reading in 5 minutes, and later will be doing the wash! I am on disability now but previously I worked for the Brain Tumor Center at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh. I was the assistant to the Director. It was difficult heartbreaking work for both the doctor and myself. Blessings my angels. Namaste, Donna Mersing

Hi, Laci! Welcome! If you put your concern in a separate post it will get more replies.  It is important that you two adults are are the same page with child-rearing and discipline.

Quoting LaciLynn04:

Hi, 

My name is Laci. I am not yet married, but have been in a 2 year relationship and we live together. Jesse (my boyfriend) has a 4 (and a 1/2) year old daughter. Don't dare say she is 4, because she will correct you! I am 27 years old, do not yet have any children of my own, but having my own is a passion I can't wait to fulfill!

Let me start by saying I didn't join this group to complain about Emily. She is not a totally out of control child that I feel like I can't handle, but as she gets older she gets more and more independent, "I know everything" attitude, argumentative, and sometimes just plan rude & disrespectful. Her father and I have totally different views on discipline. I have tried and tried to tell myself to "not care" and "stay back and let him handle it" but he doesn't handle it. Our views on discipline are as different as black and white. I feel like she needs some. He doesn't do it at all. I am not even talking about spanking her! I'm talking about a simple "Hey! Did you forget who you are talkin' to??" And, even occasionally, she needs to be sent to her room for her attitude and lack of respect. 

What my BF is the worst at, is following through and sticking to what he says. The problem is that she knows it. He will say, "I'm going to set this timer and if you're not done......then,........." But when that timer goes off and shes not done (whatever is asked) he will still let her have what he told her she couldn't. This is everytime, all the time, no matter what the situation is. She is daddies little girl, and he is WRAPPED around her pretty little finger. 

Don't get me wrong, we have great times together, her and I have a pretty great relationship, especially when it is just her and I together...but when he's home too she's a different child. 

I'm looking for advice. Understanding. Possibly a way for me to just deal with it all in a civil way. 

Feeling Super Frustrated, 

Laci

Hi ladies! My name is Beth and I'm a brand new step mom. My fiancé and I just moved into our new house and we are getting married this October. We met online!

He has 2 kids from his first marriage 8 yr. old girl and 11 yr old boy. He does not speak to his ex except for issues involving the kids. She was pretty mean to him in the 9 yrs. they were married and then tried to rake him over the coals in the divorce.

The kids are pretty good despite it all but I'm sure we'll have trials ahead!!! Looking forward to have some support here!!

Hi.

My name is Chelsea. I live in Peoria, Il. I'm 27 and 29 weeks preggo with my first. Me and my husband of almost a year and a half are so excited to meet our little boy, Dominic Xander while enjoying every minute of pregnancy. I like using the resources available for moms and thought this would be really for communicating with other mommies. Thanks for having me.

Sincerely,
Chelsea

Hi, my name is Tammy from Boston MA, 28 yr old. I'm a first time mom, my baby girl is 4 months old. I  grew up and still live in Boston. I met my husband through a mutual friend's birthday party. I love to just sit somewhere quietly with a cup of coffee and just read. What's on my mind? I can't wait to get out of work and go home to see my little munchkin.

My name is Chelsea and I live in Northern Michigan <3   I have one baby girl named Hannah-she will be 9months old in a week  I grew up on the southeast side of Detroit, and now I live near Traverse City, MI 3. I met Marshall (fiance) in 2005, he came into my work to rent a movie - then kinda never left my side HAHA...at's on you -Scrapbook, bake, take a LOOOONNNNGGG hot shower :-) The big issue on my mind is changing friendships and relationships. - and my daughter has taken to waking up multiple times thru the night suddenly-it has to be teething or growth spurt. Or maybe it's the start of seperation anxiety. Who knows, I'm only sure that I'll never need more than 2 hours to function ever again!
