My husband and I will be married 5 years on March 1st. It has not gone well the last 3 years. We argue - but REALLY only about the kids. I had 2 girls, he had 2 girls, and we have 1 son. My youngest is the issue. Well she's not the issue, but who we argue about ALL THE TIME! I'll be the first to admit that she is a hand full. Good kid, but has a verly BOLD attitude. Im from NY, he is from CA. She is a "typical New Yorker" LOL Alot like me! That's why I don't get it! As an example. I had a meeting at her school this morning. She is in 3rd grade. She is third grade. She is struggling. Her father has dyslexia, and she had seizures the first year of her life. So we 9meaning the school and I) think it might be something related to those 2 things and have developed a plan to try to address it. I come home and talk to him about it. We have to ue flash cards at home to try and "tutor" her. he says "it's crap. Thats why we pay taxes. They should be teaching her". So I explain, that we need to see if additional help will work, and if not we are going to get into testing her for other things. He says " im with her and help her do her homework. She just wants you to do it for her." We ended up in an argument. I told him from day 1 - My kids are my life. don't make me choose. You will loose. I don't know what to do. I love my husband, but I love my kids more. Why can't we all just be a family. I treat his kids, when we have them, just like they are my own. And of course, they NEVER do anything wrong. Please help!!
