That would drive me crazy if I were not allowed to parent in my own home. I have two SD ages 5 and 7. They are a joy to have. We love each other unconditionally. the Bio Mom and I started out as friends and co parented very well together. that is until she stopped taking one of her medications that caused a dark downward spiral of despair. i had enough and we stopped communicating. Now it's caused problems. We are not on speaking terms. But in my house I am Mom and I make the Mom rules. I have read some of these posts and I don't see how a Mother, Step- Mother, Step- Father or even an adult can sit back in your own home and watch a discipline problem take place without consequence! I'm in ah! How do you NOT step in? Walk away? I don't get it. My husband and children came as a package deal. I am included in that deal. We have them week on week off. The bio mother got so paranoid when I stopped talking to her, that she tried to take them away. She lost of course. She is a bright woman, when she takes her meds. Off them...a true basket case. I wish we had full custody. It would make the kids lives easier. They would miss her though. She does love them and cares for them, but she is freakin crazy!!! I have 27 typed pages ready to hand to my lawyer at the drop of a hat, of craziness that she has done. that's just over the last year and a half!!! Crazy lady.
