Out of Control Step-daughter

Tammy - posted on 10/24/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




I have been battling the same problem since I married her dad. My husband does not like to discipline his daughter. She has been in trouble more times than I can count since 13 years of age with having sex, sneaking out of the house, being disrespectful, lieing, and manpulation. No matter what I say, my husband disciplines her as if it was her first offense. I am so frustrated and mad, I just don't know what to do anymore. She is almost 17 years old and I am hoping that she leaves at 18. Does anyone have words of wisdom for me?

It's tough! I never respected my step dad. My mother never punished me either, and that is how I was used to being treated. She may never listen. She knows she can get away with stuff, and would probably rebel if he did try and discipline. Maybe take time to talk to her? Listen to her though. Teenagers are sure moody!
