He has her half the month he needs to own up to his own failings as a father rather than point fingers at the mom. He should be setting the rules in the house so he should be making sure she has clean clothes to wear and that she's keeping up with her personal hygiene! I would also be very wary of what girls are being exposed to, even though she's not your child by not stepping in and protecting her you are in essense saying its ok for someone to treat another person that way. I feel very sorry for your stepdaughter because no one is making her a priority.

Wow your husband has some big isues HE needs to deal with, somewhere a long the line his daughters been dragged in to his hatred of her mother but it's not her fault she was born to them and your husband will mess her up fact, she's already 2nd best to her mothers love live and has a father who treats her bad. I'd have him go to counselling before he ruins that poor girl for life because she will carry that on into adult life, the kids will have no self worth at all, god if her parents treat her poor she's going to think it's ok for everyone to treat her like that.

I agree that your husband has the issues, not the child. I think if he is feeling so much anger and rage, he needs to get some professional help. When it comes down to it, he has her half the time, so his daughter's behaviour is half his fault. He has contributed to the problem. Think about it, she is a CHILD, he is NOT. He is the one who has to step up and be a parent. Get him to get some professional help.
