Boogers on my furniture... again

We've been struggling with SD15 wiping boogers on our sofa and walls for years. Each time DH makes her clean it and usually gives her another punishment also.

Is DH taking advantage of me?

I'm super annoyed right now and DH thinks its totally unjustified. I don't know how to explain my feelings to him. Hopefully you all can help me figure out why i feel this way.

Too lazy to even make a Christmas wish list

Weeks ago DH and I both asked all the kids to write down their wish lists. SD15 only wrote down 3 things (ok whatever).

It's becoming very apparent that DH is disappointed in his kids

SD15 is stealing again. She got caught with a bunch of things that don't belong to her at BM's house. She has also "borrowed" things from my BD14 without asking.

I realize the way things work in my family isn't always the norm, so I'm curious if this is acceptable or rude...

Acne and cavities

I can't understand how a 15 year old girl is not interested in taking care of her face and teeth. When sd15 lived with us and started getting acne, we got her on a Pro-active program.

When out-of-control teens are old enough to drive

BM asked DH to split the cost of driving school for SD15. It's $370 for the class. DH told her he would give it some thought.

Old wedding rings

So DH has BM's wedding ring from when they were married. The marriage lasted about 3 months (they were very young) and have been divorced around 15 years now.

Family dynamics are changing

I knew skid visitations would change as they become teens, but it feels like everything is totally different all of a sudden.
