I normally don't post my personal problems here; I keep them in my journal. However, if any of you are stepparents to adult children, I need your thoughts and advice. I have raised and loved my stepdaughters since they were 6 and 3 as my own; I have one daughter myself. My oldest stepdaughter (age 34)is my problem. I won't go into all the details here for space purposes, but she is in a vile, ranting, hurtful mode right now and I am her target. Why? She made a derogatory remark about my own daughter the other night and I told her it hurt my feelings and to please keep her remarks to herself like her sister does. Well, all hell broke lose! You can read my journal for details, but in short, I am dead to her and yesterday she called my place of employment and tried to get me fired. Dead and broke - doesn't make much sense to me. Her own mother emailed me and apologized for her (not her place as she did nothing). Kim told her what she was going to do about my job. I just need some advice on how to handle this. Calling her out will only add fuel to the flames. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
