My husbands ex-wife is so frustrating and i'm not sure what to say to her if its even my place to speak up and say anything. in my opinion she is not a mom she is a "friend" to her kids. she lets them go to bed with a tv on or with a nintendo ds , she lets them roam the neighborhood with friends. they are 10 8 and 6 btw. they have no respect for her or anybody else. for meals she pops a pizza in the oven or opens a can of spaghetti. all she has in her house is junk food. and soda pop!! she gives into them all the time because as she puts it ( I don't wanna listen to them whine) we are only able to get the kids two weekends a month because of work schedules and one weekend recently my youngest step son said no I don't wanna go to dads house.. and when asked why he said well daddy doesn't let us sleep with the tv on. and his mom said thats fine you don't have to go. what the heck!!! when I bring this stuff up to my husband he just says I spent eight years arguing with that women I don't want to argue with her anymore and I don't want to argue with you about this either..... I don;t know what to do when we have the kids over they fight and argue and when we say no about anything they say they wanna go back to their moms house. I'm to the point where I dread our weekends with his kids. I love these kids and i'm concerned for there well being but most of the time I don't like them very much. I just dont know what to do anymore.... should I keep trying to get thru to my husband and make him fight or should I step up to the mom and say my piece??? HELP PLEASE!!!!!!
