hello. I am a step mom of two wonderful, beautiful teenagers. I have been in their lives for almost 8 years now/. My husband is a great father, when he is allowed to be. he pays his child support faithfully, gave her the house, the kids, the car. He pays for medical, dental and vision insurance for the kids too. However, the bio mom continues to ask for more and more money. When he tells her no, she bad mouths him in front of the kids and tells them that they can't have this or can't do that because daddy won't pay for it. Then, per usual, daddy is the jerk. When the kids to begin to get involved with dad, mom will call and harasses them. Wondering when they are coming home, what are they doing with their father. She tells them to make sure they get dad to take them out and spend money on them.. Then, again, when he doesn't, he is the jerk..
Will she ever stop?? How can we make the kids understand that dad is not a bank? These kids have NO rules and NO respect for their mother. She allows them do go out at all hours of the night, she leaves them home alone ALL weekend, she allows them to drink alcohol (15 & 18 yrs old) she allows BOTH of them to have their boyfriends and girlfriends sleep over and continally tells dad that if either of them get pregnant or get anyone pregnant, it will be his fault because he wont pay for birth control.
The courts do nothing to help. As long as the kids have a roof over thier head and food in their stomach, they don't care. Does anyone know what we can do to get this woman to BACK OFF!!??
