step children vs ex wife

How do I take a Christian good willed approach to dealing with manipulation from my husband's ex and his two teenage children? I am always the one being blamed. So frustrating! !

Pray about it. Without more to go on, that's about all you can do.

She constantly finds ways to manipulate his time, our time with phone calls that are hurtful. She tells him he is a bad dad, he is losing his kids, etc. She threatens to take him back for more child support. my husband n I r working hard to put our marriage back on track and doing it with God's help n word and she is always talking down to him, as if she n he were still.married. now I know it is all about boundaries. This is not new to me, but I wish I could get him to understand how him letting her continue this behavior is disruptive to our time n our time with her children. His son is adhd n ODD and his mother doesn't discipline him. We have rules, always have. the son is very rude and disrespectful . I have 5 children of my own, 3 having ADD. I do understand the frustration. We have 7 together. Ages 23 to 10 and one grand baby. I know I need to let him deal with her but it is hard to watch her beat him down. His child support is always paid, he is always taking them to appts and things on top of his regular time with them. But she always finds a way to say to him that he is throwing away his relationship with them. I am.even trying to pray for her.

How long have you been with your husband and in the lives of his children? And what do you mean by manipulation from his ex?
