Going crazy over BF's (almost non existent) parenting and his daughters spoiled ways
Well, my boyfriend and I have known each other for about five years but we have only been a couple for nearly one. Things have happened quite fast, I moved in about six months ago and I am now four months pregnant with my first child. He has a twelve year old daughter and for the most part she is a pretty good kid. Before I moved in I thought she was an amazing kid but now having lived with her I'm noticing some faults.Nothing too bad, just she has no structure and frankly does whatever she pleases. I don't know if it's pregnancy hormones or what but the littlest things are really starting to bug me. She doesn't pick up after herself, she lies, she never takes the blame, shes quite bossy with other kids, and at times can be disrespectful. Really it's all her dads fault for allowing this behavior. I try to add some structure by making her pick up after herself and keeping her room cleaned but I have no back up and her dad never makes her face any consequences so nothing lasts very long. Because I have no children of my own, how can I tell him how to raise his daughter? I don't know what to do anymore and I am afraid this relationship isn't going to last if things don't change.
