Cost of not spending an evening with the bratty girls?? $120

So the DH tells me that he has a "side job" to do tomorrow night coincidentally at the same time as my BS's football game, which means I will have to keep the twin SD's with me.

Help! Frustrated with a sss = spoiled step son. I have no authority, watching his behavior worsen.

This is my first post. I am in a long term relationship. We have been together for eight years, and at this point it would be ludicrous to say that we are not one family.

Can't Stand SD, Venting and Need Advice

I’m at my wits end. I cannot stand my 4yo SD. Her parents were together a short time when she was a small baby so she has no recollection of them together. I’ve been in her life since she was 18 months old and my fiancé has custody, she only goes with her mom on the weekends.

Should kids be here if mom isn't, on other parent's time?

I believe I did the right thing putting my foot down and this time dw did what I asked her to do, but can still tell a tiny bit of her resents having to do it.
