I have a soon to be step daughter who is 5 and who has a serious ego problem. She out right disrepects. She is manipulative and decitful. While her father does agree that there is a problem, he does nothing to correct it. This has gone on for years and is getting worse with age. Just in the past week she has colored on my fridge, my bathroom walls, my kitchen walls, my son's bookself, my son's bed, my computer desk, my computer. She has went in our panty and covered herself and my sofa in flour and then hid her cloths in my closet. I put the markers on the top of the fridge and I couldn't figure out how she kept coloring on things without anything to color with. Then I reliezed she has been sliding the table chairs to the fridge and literally crawling up the cupboards when everyone is asleep in the middle of the night to get them. She takes one at time and then hides it in some part of the house. This is causing serious strain on my relationship with her father. I'm so close to telling him to get out just so I don't have to deal with her anymore. I know that makes me sound mean and I'm normally not but this child cross's the threshold in a way I could never describe. She spits on the other 2 kids..both who are older then her. She punched her brother in the nose a few days ago and when asked why she replied, "I wanted to have great fun." Her father things these are normal kid things and says she doesn't know it's wrong. He always thinks she doesn't know what's going on when it's really him that doesn't know whats going on. She plays him for a fool and the only thing he has agreed to do is send her to therapy once a MONTH! I can not live my entire life dealing with this, despite how much I love her father. She is running me out of my own home. Can anyone relate and if so how in the world do you stay sane?
