Three Little Pigs
I am new to this forum and relieved to have a place to express my taboo feelings.
My three step daughters have a lot of horrible habits, ages 10, 8, 7. One of these bad habits is eating like pigs. Their father, my husband, eats a lot and their bio mother is over weight too. These kids spend a lot of time with their grandmother who feeds them constantly. We have them 50% of the time.
THEY EAT LIKE PIGS! Two of the girls are over-weight and over eat at every meal stuffing their faces literally til food falls out of their mouths or they drop it in their laps. They consistently use their hands and end up with food in their hair and on their clothes. They smack and ask for more food while food is still on their plate. They talk with so much food in their mouths you can't understand what they are saying. We can feed them any meal and then they want to know if they can eat more or have dessert. They eat twice what I am able to consume and I am an adult.
I have talked with their dad about portion control and healthy eating. I have gently tried to get them to use better table manners but now, it grosses me out to eat with them. It is to the point where I cannot eat with them anymore.
My husband is so tired of my complaints he just tunes me out and I am beginning to look like the bad guy no matter what I do or how nice I do it. Should I just start skipping dinner or eating before I get home? It is really, really bad!
