Ok, I am the step mother for a nearly 16 yr girl, She is overall a very wonderful well behaved child, she mostly lives with my husband and me and spends maybe every other weekend with her mother. She is very respectful of her mother because and i quote "im scared of her", in the past the mother physically punished her, not to the lines of abuse, But here with in the last year, my step daughter has had the habit of a very very vulgar mouth towards me mostly and her father here and there, mostly she calls her father a dumbass or an asshole, which he isnt in any way, he will tell her to watch her mouth but to no prevail. Although when it comes to me, i get, fuck off, and shut up and a list of other things. mostly fuck off, sometimes its in a joking manner but i dont take it as a joke, now she doesn't use this language at her mothers or towards her mother. yet my step daughter and i have a pretty close relationship, i have tried grounding her but she doesnt care about being in her room, shes in it almost all the time, nor does she care if i take anything away from her, cell phone, game system, tv. it just doesn't seem to phase her in the least. Kinda at my whits end. any suggestions?
