I am on the same page as Jodi. Unless you and step mom get along good then there may be no way to get her to be on the same page as you with your kids. You need to be speaking to their father about any concerns you have about the kids and let him handle his wife from there. If you try to tell them what can be and can't be regarding the kids, you are in for a rough long set of years. Trust me, I know this from experience and I am sure Jodi does as well. I have had the step moms try to tell me how it should work on visitations, doctor appointments, and school things. I had to put my foot down and make sure it was understood that she had no control or say in how me and the father of my kids handled their major things going on. He did not tell me how to handle them in my home and I did not tell him how to handle them in his.

I think we need a little more information. Because without know what you are talking about, I'm going to hazard a guess and tell you that you can't control what goes on in the other parent's home.
