What do you do when you have just your bios? Isn't it so sweet to not have to put up some sort of front- either a fake niceness or a defensive front against their manipulations and nastiness?

I have an SD12 who is here every other week all year long...She has been horrible since day one..typical mini-wife stuff, extreme jealousy of me and my BD13.

I told DH that BM needs to send food for SD and he freaked .. VENT

This may sound petty but keep in mind this is a pretty regular occurrence. We have SD full time. BM takes her 1 day and pays no child support.

DH told his Bio he gives up ?

Problems with my SS started at age 5 when he & SD came to live with DH, myself & my two bios(twins 13yr). DH & I tried to reteach SS12 & SD13 a normal way of life.
