I know that being a step mom is a thankless job. I work very hard and my step daughter is with me for two weeks and gone two weeks. Every time she's here we have to re-establish rules as her biological mother doesn't believe in dicipline and puts me down to her. She is a beautiful little girl who comes to my house saying that her mommy misses her daddy. Her mommy is the one who cheated on my husband for 8 months and then left. How do I keep myself from getting angry at all the things that she tells me goes on there? I love that little girl like she was my own and only want what's best for her... What steps should I take to make sure she is happy and healthy in both homes? Her mother and I do not get along because she has sent my husband nude photos (which he told her to stop and she continued) called DFS twice (nothing came of the calls) she filed for child support stating my husband only had her a few days a week and ended up owing us $1 per year, she took us to mediation and then stated she was taking us to court, and she has tried to get a therapist to say that my girlly shouldn't stay here. It's rediculous. She even refused to let her daughter attend our wedding while she contested the parenting plan as her daddy should not marry me. The sad part is she herself is married.
