My husbands daughter moved in with us about nine months ago. We also have two younger daughters together. Unfortunetly I feel my husband suffers from divorced Dad guilt.
He has been divorced for 11years, and his ex wife remarried right way. We have been together for 8 years, so its not like the divorce is fresh.
When she first moved in , i was understanding to his "friend" approach, but the lack of structure and disappline led to a lot of problems during the school year. Now that the summer is over and school is beginning I need some advise as to how to handle his lack of parenting. Any time I try to talk about it, he is very defensive. We are both very disapplined with our two little girls, and I sence they see the difference in how my husband treats his oldest child. I dont want our girls to see thier older sister acting out and think its ok.
How do I handle this situation with out being the wicked step mom? and without offending my husband?
