with them and their father? Not with their mother?? If so,I would love to hear your feelings on it! I am a mom to 3 kids Joey-almost 20,Anthony-18 and Gabriella soon to be 8.Stepmom to Nick-12 and Heather 8. Husband had jont custody with him being the primary. The children all live with us,and hubby works out of town for 2/3 days at a time so I am the one who has the responsibility of homework,feeding,bathing etc. Any opinions on discipline? Dr. Phil says "step parent should not do discipline" well,in my case,I can't exactly let them get away with no accountability for days,serves no purpose then does it? Overall they are good kids,main problems so far have been homework not getting done,little fibs-nothing major! I wish we had the option to MAKE the biomom/biodads see their kids........they come and go when they want are "THE MOM" when they find it handy and it is building quite the amount of resentment on my part.Hubby won't enforce visistation because "I don't want her to think I don't want them here"..........I could go on forever! PLEASE tell me someone else here is in my place too???
