Help needed! Stepdaughter tantrums

Liannekmj's picture

Been putting this off for a while as I'm unsure where to start but I need some help/ advice/ miracle!

My fiancé and I have been together for almost 4 years, we have an 18 month old boy together and my partner has a 12 year old boy and an 8 year old girl from a previous relationship. We see his kids half the week and both of us have a good relationship with BM.


First blog. Need to know if I'm crazy or not for my thoughts.

Ok, here goes nothin'. So I started seeing my fiance 3 years ago. I had known her previously but we had never really hung out exclusively. We decided to go out and hit it off, the rest is history. I started going over to her place to hang out on the weekends mostly (I don't go out during the work week). I met her daughter who was 6 at the time and the kid seemed cool enough. And I did the new boyfriend thing and played nerf guns and superheroes with her really with my intentions being that she would see that I'm not a bad guy.


No life skills and no care for education

I worked as a Paraeducator for years and am now pursuing teaching while I stay at home with my LO. My step daughter's mother is also a a Paraeducator and works at her school that she attends. I am getting so frustrated with my boyfriend and my SD's mother for not putting more importance on her education or her knowing basic life skills! She is 8 and in my opinion, severely behind in school. It has been known she was behind since I've known her but now it's more than being a little behind, she is years behind.


Skids Ruling the Roost!

I love the Netflix series "Queer Eye."  I just watched an episode where the Fab 5 were making over a man who had been with his SO for several years, had two kids together, and she had a daughter.  The skid, probablly 8 or 9 decided that she didn't want to sleep downstairs in the house they were living in so the parents allowed her to have the master bedroom upstairs while they lived in the basement.  Bobby (house, interior design, etc) said, "Oh no, that's not okay."  Bobby was of the mindset like most of us who know better, that kids don't get everything they want or to kick the parents ou

Ok, this is my first time ever on a blog so please be kind..... I just need a little help.. My boyfriend and I have been together almost 10years. He has a 18 and 16 yr old girls and I have a 12yr old boy and 10yr old girl. He has pretty much been their only dad. When we first got together he would do and say things to my kids that I did not necessarily agree with but would let happen to see how it worked. Somethings worked somethings we had to have a disscussion about but for the most part we could agree on how to raise "my" children as ours.


She just won’t get it.... seriously?

Three months ago H and I visited 2 x SD (32 and 34) who live in another city for a weekend.  We then took them, SD1 has a H and son, SD2 is divorced and has no children, to a beautiful holiday home in a gorgeous part of NZ for three nights.  My two biological sons flew into the town and joined us as well.  We paid for everything, which we are both happy to do.  However, can someone tell me why youngest SD makes sure she thanks her father and not me, when I am not present?


Step daughter won't help herself!

My wife and I go pick up my step daughter in Florida while her ex-boyfriend is in jail, I know right real winner! They have a little boy 6 months old. The relationship is very rocky with physical fights, verbal abuse, lies, cheating and jail. We move her to Oklahoma with an agreement that we will help her make a safe and better life for them both. She is to get her license, car and her own place with our help of course. At six months the ex-boyfriend gets out of jail and makes his way to Oklahoma, not good! He comes to the house, cops are called big scene in front of my neighbors.
