New here looking for answers...Why and Why?!
I’ve been reading some Recent posts that I can really relate to.
My DH is afraid to Discipline SD13. She is a total Spoiled brat and getting worse by the day. DH will ask SD to do something like brush her teeth,clean up her mess, go to bed ect. If SD does it fine BUT if she digs in her heals and refuses DH will just let it go. There is NEVER any kind of Punishment regardless what she does. SD13 has HIT, swore and screamed at both DH and me and NO Consequences. Yes I’ve had MANY Arguments with DH over this and his Excuse is “if I push back to hard on her(SD) she will not want to come over anymore”. So basically DH spends every other weekend AND two days a week Tiptoeing around SD13.
As I saw in another post SD is Horrible with HW. She refuses to do it without help. “Help” meaning DH reading her HW Assignment while she just sits there then DH “explains” meaning telling her what it said. DH Basically tells SD the Answers and she just puts it in her own words all while daddy is sitting right next to her. A lot of SD’s school work is done on line on something called “google classroom”. Recently DH started signing into SD’s account so he can read up/study on her next Assignments so he’s not doing it on his Precious daddy/Daughter time. Big WTF he should not be doing it at all. I have to wonder what the Teachers/guidance counselor would think if they knew this. I’ve explained this is NOT helping SD and DH just says I just need to get her caught up or my favorite I don’t think she understands what to do. SD now ONLY wants to do HW with DH. I can’t Imagine why (sarcastic). DH “thinks” he’s teaching her study skills and I just think he’s teaching her how to get out of doing the work herself. Opinions????
