I am a Step parent to a 3 year old girl, I have been in her life since the day she was born and been helping her father raise her. Her mom has primary custody. Lately, my step daughter has been clinging to her dad constantly and anytime I tell her "no" whether it be from touching things she shouldn't, to standing on a chair etc she starts to "fake cry"/ "whine" and then she says "I'm going to tell dad!" and she does. She then tells him "Daddy, Jessica is being mean to me" and he believes her. I feel like I'm the only one who disciplines her. My husband rarely does, and when he does he tells her to "come here" and gives her a hug after and says "it's okay". UGH! He's even told me, "I'm not going to be the bad guy because I only have her 3 days a week." I don't know what to do?!
