I've got 2 step-daughters (7& 10), when they come to visit it's a battle over everything! I have 2 other children, so when I ask them to do their daily chores, I expect them all to help. Well, my visiting daughters don't help because they have a maid back home! They fight all the time with my other 2 kids...I"m not sure if it's a battle over "love" or jealousy, but it's killing me & making me feel like the Mean Step-Mom when I have to reprimand them. Help...any suggestions on how to build a cohesive family!?
