Good day all... I'm new... h e l p

I'm a nearly 40 dad to 1 great 3 year old and a soon to be 15 year old SD. My wife and I used to fight about how poorly I thought she raised her DD as far as nutrition and manners.

I am back in control again!

I am back in control again! I am not giving this kid chance to stress out my zen! She really isn't worth it.
In fact I have slept so well since I made this decision!!

I think I might pretend to be stone deaf whilst around SD 12

I think the only way I can deal with this child of 12 whom lives in my home is to totally ignore her.

Rules for Manipulating Your Parents

. Deny all knowledge and involvement of any charges against you. Sounds like: "I wasn't there", "It wasn't me", "I don't know anything about it".

Does anyone else here have Fulltime Skids?

I have 3 fulltime step daughters, 12, 14 and 15.

I have been in the picture for 10 years.

There mother is not in the picture and I am guessing for 11 or so years.

Future step parents and perils !!!!

If potential step-parents would visit sites like this and read all these posts about what happens out there,then perhaps they would think twice about the entire deal !!!
