I have 4 step kids , 2 boys and 2 girls(16,14,11 and 7) and live with their mom 3 hours away from us. We get them on the weekends and holidays. I have noticed lately that my daughters lunch snacks and cases of pop that I have boughten are missing. I actually caught my 11 year old step daughter with the snacksi n her bag and she says that her mom doesnt buy her the kinds of snacks that she likes.
My husband says its not stealing, beacuse its their fathers house, but I do consider it stealing, or taking with out permission. He pays $1000.00 a month in child support for his children. I get no support for my daughter. I have repeatedly asked them not to eat her lunch snacks for school, they can have anything else in the house they want, except those items. I always make sure to have plenty of food when the kids are here, and not sure what to do about this...am I being unreasonable???
