I am living with my boyfriend and his two kids who are 10 year old twins. One boy and one girl. I moved in the thier house a year ago. We are having a huge issue with the kids being very disrespectful to myself and Doug as well. I try and get a long with them and do things for them ie do laundry, clean the sheets on the bed, take them out to dinner things like that and i get crap when i ask them to pick up after themselves. For four years yes it was just daddy and them with no major rules. Now I step in and I do not want major rules just simple ones like pick up after yourselves, clean your room, quiet down, take a bath. I get mouth back from the boy not so much the girl. I am just at a lost on what to do. Yes Doug wants to support them and myself. They feel as though hes not supporting them even though he is. At times I feel like he lets them get away with way to much. Any ideas on how to deal with this?
