I have two step kids (17 yr girl and 18, almost 19 yr boy). They are horrible. Example, this weekend for Labor day we had company over. My SD gets out of the pool and proceeds to wrap a towel around her and undress, in front of our company! When I said something, since her dad did not even notice, she gave my lip. Then later, she and her brother where arguing and she called him a pu33y in front of of company. Talk about horrified and their dad said nothing. His kids do not shower daily nor do they brush their teeth. Their language is awful. My husband, says they are trying to express themselves. BS! I quit taking my SD shopping after our incident at Macy's. I hear this girl effing this and effing that. I am thinking my goodness someone needs to tell their daughter to watch her language. It was mine!!! This is just the tip of it with her. My SS, he is almost 19 and still in high school. He does to school on line (per his mothers request) because he hates going to a regular high school and being told what to do. He can stay here a week and NEVER shower. He refuses to brush his teeth because tooth paste tastes gross. He refuses to get a job because someone will tell him what he has to do. These are his exact words. When I asked him what his plans were once and if he ever graduates, he said, well... to live with mom until she kicks me out, then move in with you and dad, so I can play video games all day. When I told him you will not live here without a job, he said oh, well I guess I will have to beg my mom to stay with her. His language is just a bad. I had to correct him all day Sunday when we had company, for dropping the f bomb. My husband does nothing to correct their behavior until I say something. He is so afraid they will not come to visit or like him if he discipline them. Oh the one time we grounded them about 2 yrs ago, their mother called and said they decided not to come back over because they were still grounded. Of course my husband said ok... I will unground them and they no longer have to do chores. And his ex seems to still have his balls in her purse. She says jump and he is like how high. My in laws are coming to visit on a weekend we have them and neither wish to see them. Their own grandparents dislike them due to their behavior. When we took them to visit their gandparents, my SD tells my husbands mother, I like to manipulate daddy, it is soooo much fun. Advise PLEASE!!! We had another argument last night and the wall is coming up on both sides. I love my husband and he is a wonderful person. I want to try with his kids but my God it is so hard when they are so disgusting.
