I go crazy trying to get Kari to develop good hygiene for herself. Her Dad lets her do whatever she wants. He sets no boundaries, and I'm left being the bad guy when she does things wrong. He lets her eat whatever she wants. I try to feed her healthy food, but she just says no. This is the reason she behaves this way. He never set any limits with her, and cooks her special meals. She won't eat what we're having for dinner. She eats chicken nuggets, pizza, French fries, donuts, candy, any kind of junk. I'm surprised I'm not on nerve pills on the weekends we have visitation with her. Her Mom spoils her rotten just like her Dad. Now, I'm the evil stepmom trying to keep her healthy. She is putting on the pounds, and already wearing the same size as me. What can I do? I've tried talking with my husband, and nothing ever changes. He says there is nothing we can do because she's only here every other weekend. p.s. Her Mom is overweight too. I don't want her to get obese. HELP!
