well i a have 4 step children that live us full time plus we have 3 children with my husband. i do not know what to do i ask them nicely to go n do there jobs n it is like they have ear plugs in that they just will not do it for me. but when i get there dad to come and ask them to do it he has just do what u r asked n they get up and do it straight away. i do not know what to do. i get up some mornings and do what i need to do with the 3 little ones and not worry about it the other 4 have done there jobs or not. which i feel is less stress full for me. but then i know the jobs have not been done and i feel like going and doing them my self but i try not to. plus i have all ways payed for there things at school but i have stopped that to and told them that dad can pay for them now as u will not do what u r told.
or do i just walk around the house and do all the jobs and not ask them to do a thing and then have a melt down in front of everyone saying a can not cope anymore. i really do not know. it is the same as the older ones teasing the little ones. but when they are not around the little ones are good as gold.
someday i feel like just packing my bags and going then they can have there life and i can have mine then i would not be stressed and my high depression would kick. help me
