So I have a SD who just turned 5, and my daughter will be 5 in 2 months. We have my SD on the weekends only, and when we have her, I feel like Im constantly yelling at her. She is very smart for her age, and knows how to manipulate her dad. She often drives me crazy, bc she irritates and teases my daughter. They bicker over everything, litterally. She spends a week with her biomom where she has no rules same with he mamaw and papaws. This girl can do whatever she wants as long as she isnt bothering mom. So when she comes here on the weekends, she thinks she can act the same way. She picks on my daughter and thinks that she can tell her what to do bc she is 5 mos older than my daugher and she is twice her size. My daughter is average, my SD is age 5 and weighs 75lbs. I get in these irratable moods, and get very bitchy whenever she is here bc of this crap. I love my bf, and I hope his fight for full custody prevails but at the same time Im glad when its time for her to go back to her moms. I dont know what to do, besides keep yelling at her and putting her in time out and taking away whatever she is teasing about. My bf, gets on her also, but I dont think she realizes he is serious. Any ideas on what to do?
