More than a little freaked out here.
Bio-mom has finally decided (after many threats) she's DONE with- her 14 y.o. girl and wants to ship her off to us.
I have my hands full the every-other-weekend that we get her as it is. My own kids are 12 y.o. boy (AI/ADHD difficult child) and 9 y.o. girl (major moods).
Would really like to talk to some step-moms of difficult children. Hubby and I need help coming up with a "game plan" for this.
He tends to side with his daughter. :smirk:
She is a bad influence on my kids, who are no saints anyway. She refuses to take her ADHD medications. Walks all over her mom.
She is verbally abusive, hangs out with 17-19 year old boys, threatens to run away, failing in school, and more. She's as big as me, with a temper and a foul mouth.
I am not of the disposition to put up with the kind of crap she gives her mother. My husband works afternoons 6 days and so would never be around except on Sundays. It would only be me, and I'm at wit's end with my own two. Plus they are both in a lot of extra-curriculars and we live a long way from town.
