I have a son (14) and daughter (12) and step daughter (11). My husband and I have been together for 4 years now. Our girls share a room, are both in the 6th grade this year with the same homeroom teacher. We are on similar custody schedule, not exact, but we do have the kids on the same weekends.
My daughter, who currently takes TaeKwonDo mentioned last evening that she is interested in playing softball this year. My step daugther was not in favor of this and was quite rude about expressing her feelings. To the point where she said with disgusting look upon her face, I don't want her to play softball. In which we asked why, and her response was, "cause I don't want to have to be on the same team as her, be in her class and share a room with her too."
My daughter was offended, however doesn't want my Step daughter to quit softball just because she intends on playing, nor does she want to sit and watch her play, if she could be playing too.
The issue is, 1. it was a rude comment and my Husband called her out on it. 2. My step daughter doesn't always finish things she starts, gymnastics, swimming, girls on the run etc. and we want to prevent this from happening. 3. How do we appease everyone?
Thank you for your input.
