When does the skids crappy rude attitude start to dissipate?
When does the shitty & completely rude attitude end with skids? Specifically the 14yr SD. Damn she is a RUDE little bitch! It just never ends long enough to enjoy or relax. I tried consistently for 2.5yrs but the past year I just stopped doing things or lending a helping hand or trying to teach her the basics of life, since her pc of crap, drunk, screwed up mother never has & never will and just can't. (DH has full custody and BM only has the wknds to see her 2 kids).So for the most part I just don't pay attention to her until I have had enough and then I put her in her place. And DH sees and says things to her but IMO is not firm enough. He still talks to her for the most as though she is still a toddler & most of the time is just not consistent with any reprimending or disciplining. He has gotten better but there is still so much that goes on and is allowed. She tries to use dad against me and manipulates the hell out of him. She has learned alot of things from her mother; how to use people, lie, manipulate, story telling, distraction, bad manners, hell I could on and on. And then she will have a brief moment of kindness, basically when she 'wants' something or her way (the manipluation/distraction). She is always up in our business. Shes always instigating/plotting to get us to argue/fight. She waits till dad has left the room to say shit & tries to tell her daddy she didnt say that. He has caught on but at the same time is blinded by the fact that is his little girl. By all means I love the fact he is a caring and responsible parent, but enough is enough with the baby talk & treatment and especially her manipulative & evil ways. I'm almost to the point I want to smack the shit out of her and shake the blindness and deafness out of him. I have told him I am sorry but I can't & don't feel the same about your kids as you do. I told him I care for them and want the best for them but I can't trust them and don't like them 1/2 of the time, well mainly this has to do with her. She has betrayed my trust and belief after I have caught her in my room going through my stuff, stuff has disappeared & showed up on her or in her room, after she has tried to blast me & us with her bitchyness. It has got to stop eventually, sooner than later or maybe I should just be on my merry little way?!?!? What do you do? What is there to do about this?
