I have problems getting along well with my step kids. They wouldn't do what I have asked them to do, probably because they know I am not their mum

How long have you been with them? And yes, hand over the responsibility to their dad. However, also get dad to have a chat with them about respecting you, as this is your house too, and you are an adult, that you do a lot for them, etc.

Thanks Jodi, I have always done my best to do what is right for them, but it seems they don't appreciate me. I told their dad yesterday that I won't ask them to do anything again, whatever I want them to do he should make them do it. Is this right for me to do

Or because you haven't earned their respect yet? My step children will do anything (within reason) that I ask them to do because they respect this is their father's AND my house and they respect our needs too.
