I have been with my husband for over 7 years married for 2 of them. He recently just got to see his kids about a year and a half ago. They were molested by the mothers bf and my husband found this out on Father's Day 2 years ago. The point of this discussion is that I have so much resentment towards my step daughter. We welcomed her into our home after she got back in contact with her dad. However since then it has been a rollercoaster. Her mother got busted for drugs and now we have the son. He is no problem it is always her. We have DCF and guardian something involved in our lives. She has complained that she gets no time alone with her father. However this is not true. On the weekends they are both the early birds and are hanging outside or in the garage drinking coffee while everyone else is sleeping. She is constantly outside with him throughout the day. She does everything in her power to not be near me at least that is how it seems. For instance she knows chores are to be done before I get home while everyone else is doing theirs she is outside with her dad but as soon as I pull up she hurts inside to do them. She has cut her hair cut herself and I could go on. They are always outside. I know my husband loves the outdoors to and I do to but I am going through health issues and cannot stand the heat. I feel he is always talking to her more than me. Half the time I dont get a word in because he is always talking. When he is drinking that's the worse. I stay away because he repeats himself but she is right there on his behind. When it comes to helping inside the house it's like you have to tell at her to get help. I have gotten to the point that I am done. It just seems like nothing I do works or helps.
