My partner and I live together, we have been together for 5 years, I have 3 children and he has 3 children, his children are always with us, he is a widow, I am divorced and my children are here about 60-70% of the time, gone every other weekend with their dad. I have noticed that my partner has been spending a lot of money on his oldest daughter lately, getting her what ever she asks for when she asks for it. She lies to him and gets bad grades and even after that rewards her for her bad behavior. When my kids get things they don't just get them it is usually a special occasion like christmas or birthdays. How do I talk to him about this, I think it's wrong, I think she is manipulating him and I think he thinks somehow by buying her whatever she wants he'll be closer to her and make up for her mom not being around. How do I talk about this with him, I'm not jealous about it or anything I just think it is the wrong way to be raising your kids, this is why we have all these entitled little monsters running around.
