How do you handle when you have step children and when they come over they are always trying to get you and husband to fight so they can get there way by there dad? They know how to push certain buttons..they are 18 and 20 and know better.

I think your husband needs to stand up to them though. It's not going to work coming from you. He needs to let them know that if they can't accept what happens at your house then they won't be welcome.
They are adults, if they want something they should work and save like everyone else.

I have 4 kids and my husband has the two girls and when christmas comes his two girls get mad that we can't hand them over everything they want or they get mad that we can only afford 100 bucks a kid..They are like we get more then that from our grandparents.. Sometimes I feel like telling them then you won't get nothing at all.

Since we got married there attitude has changed and they say that I have changed there dad. I have done nothing. They also lived with us til we got married and then went to live with there mom. They are aloud to do whatever with there mom, but at our house there is rules and they don't like them so they don't ever come around unless they want something. I feel they still have to respect us and go by our rules if they are at our house and they are not going to disrespect me in my home like they do. Thank you guys

It is none of their business what you and your husband are doing. Are they still doing visitation or something at this age? They are adults.

I would be telling them to act their age. They are adults and by the sounds of it they acting like spoiled brats!
