Hello, I have a 12 year old step daughter who lives with us full time, its always ups and downs for her. but she is so defiant! she will not do anything to taking a shower to school work. the only thing we can get her to do is take her medicine. she is bipolar. she was in the hospital for almost two months. as soon as she starts doing one things she is supposed to she stops everything else. As if being a step mother isnt hard enough right? so my husband is in school full time and goes to work from five to ten so we dont see him very often except to get the children ready for school. she will only throw fits for me. thats it. she yells and throws fits down on the ground this last time i had to pin her up on a wall just so she wouldnt hurt my 7 month old. does anyone have any advice? all i feel like doing is crying all the time.View Thread
Thank you Kathleen, I live in Oklahoma in the Shawnee,Norman or Tecumseh area. Sometimes i just feel like screaming, i hate to think that it is leading to marriage problems but frustration is always there.View Thread
