My husbands children are five and six. The older child is the girl/artist, and the five year old is a boy/astronaut :). They are both incredible and a happy new addition to my life. Having separate homes, and separate rules have been a very big challenge. Their mother is not willing to cooperate on any level.

 Welcome to the group! Five and six can be tough anyway, but adding to it having a stepmom and different rules at the two houses can definitely make it harder. Have you talked to your husband about it?

I bet the moms on the Stepmom Central group would also have some advice for you:

Welcome and Hi!  I have the same battle.  We have four boys: 6.5, 6, 3, almost 2.  The easiest thing to do is remind the kids that they need to follow your house rules when they are in your house.  Trust me, it is not easy.  We are going on three years as a blended family and still struggling at times.

Welcome to the group.  I think your DH and their mom need to have a sit down and discuss the expectations when they are at your home.

Welcome to the group! How old are your kids? I bet that has to be difficult!
