Bratty step children, what should I do ?
My husband has 2 kids, the girl is 15 and the boy 12. My husband makes a good amount of money and his ex wife really takes advantage of it. (He bought her a house, pays her electricity and heating bills every month) . She’s got a very good deal going for her. However, both the kids are super spoiled and bratty. She always brings them for shopping and buys expensive and designer items for the kids, which she demands my husband to pay for them afterwards. Those kids are entitled and think that they deserve everything. Like a few days ago, my husband was getting a new phone because his was broken. His daughter texted him in the meantime, demanding for him to buy her one too.(the one she wanted was more than a thousand dollars each) he said no. But then she said that she had put her current phone (who was working perfectly), for sale online and that she had a buyer. My husband fell for it and bought her the phone. We got home, he gave her the phone and asked for the money. She then said that there was no buyer for her phone after all. SO, she lied and manipulated him to get the 1000$ phone. I was so pissed off. He didn’t even say anything. I would’ve taken the phone back to the store. It’s so frustrating. They also have big authority issues. I mean, at 15 and 12, they should help around in the house. I’m always the one cooking and cleaning for everyone, without any help. It’s frustrating. I have asked them to help me but they always say no and my husband doesn’t want me to tell them what to do. We usually never fight, but because of his parenting method, we do. I don’t know what to do.
