Am I crazy...or is this normal?
So I am newly married. I have 4 children of my own ranging from 2-12. My new husband has a 5 year old daughter with his ex wife. They were divorced about 5 years ago. He was in a relationship for 1 1/2 years after his divorce. The ex wife lets the ex girlfriend see his daughter. My husband is NOT okay with it at all. And it seems she deliberately does this. The whole situation seems extremely detrimental to my step daughter in the future. And it causes confusion for her...my primary concern as a parent of my own is for my children's welfare and safety. And while the ex girlfriend may care for SD I don't think it is healthy for them to continue a relationship. It is a constant fight and struggle. And my SD has recently started saying, "I have two step moms." The ex wife even makes plans during My husbands time with his daughter. Which during Thanksgiving caused a huge fight between all of us. Including my husband and I. With Christmas a few weeks away now I'm dreading the holiday because it is nonstop phone calls from his Ex wife. I simply just don't understand this behavior and why his daughter is seeing his ex girlfriend. Any advice on this issue? Is this normal and okay for a child?
