Me and my boyfriend cant seem to get along when his daughter is around she is 8 yrs old and constently lies about everything.... example: we were planning a day to the park (me and her) and when her dad asks what we were doing i tell him and she says that im lying. I dont know what to do anymore she throws temper tantrums and cries about everything: brushing her teeth, eating, that she doesnt know what she wants to drink but she wants a drink, taking a shower, and going to bed... I just think if she had a little disipline that the problems would stop. She has also told me to drop my son bc he was crying and asked if we could leave my son at his grandma's bc she doesnt want to be around him... my son is just 6 months old and at the time was 3 or 4 months old....Im at my wit's end and im getting all kinds of crap about not being able to get along with her when i honestly believe that the problem lies with her father and not her. The one time she got displined was bc she started throwing a fit screaming and crying bc she didnt want to eat pot roast ( i think it was she just wanted the ice cream she was promised after) and for 15 min she cried in the living room... and he finally sent her to her room and 15 min later (still crying) she comes and sits at the kitchent able...crying... and then the loveseat... crying... and then next to her dad still crying and instead of telling her to go back ot her room he goes outside and leaves her with me (and yes i would of sent her back to her room but im not allowed to deal any kind of disipline to her) So we sit down to eat and she polishes her plate and then asks for 2nds and so my bf takes her for icecream.
ANY IDEAS IM DESPERATE FOR HELP
