I'm new to the whole Mommy thing, I'm a Stepmommy. Well my partner's ex-wife (their Mom) and I don't have anything in common, but our relationship is civil. One thing really REALLY bothers me. She makes them eat off the floor at her house.
They're both autistic (ages 4 and 6) and the older one verbalizes and the younger one is working on it. They sit at the table and eat like little gentlemen at my house, they even use napkins on their laps.
I think it's borderline abusive to have them eat on the floor. She claims it's an easy clean up, I think it's treating them like animals.
