My Husband Thinks She's a Princess!
My step-daughter is well-mannered and sweet, but can utilize those fine skills to be very manipulative and get exactly what she wants. She is very cunning and sneaky and finds creative ways to avoid getting herself into trouble. She will be 13 in March and refers to people as having "issues" and that they will "get over it" when she does something that is against the rules. By the way, rules don't apply to her....not according to her! She recently told her dad that she won't come over if I am at home because I yelled at her. Yet it is okay for her dad to yell at my children! I HATE HER!As you may have noted by the date, this entry had been written several years ago. My husband's daughter never changed. In fact, her behavior escalated. She stole my son's laptop, x-box games, her dad's credit card, her mother's jewelry to pawn and even stole a pistol of her dad's from our home! Sadly, her dad did not hold her accountable or responsible for any of her behaviors. She is now a senior in high school with 4 credits, attending a "second chance" program. Unfortunately, my husband passed away suddenly and unexpectedly this past July. I have cut ties with his daughter. The opportunity to finally sever all ties with this young lady , if she deserves to be called that, is the only positive thing that came out of my husband's passing. She caused havoc for the past 9 years, and now that she is just about 18, the man I love is gone from my life forever.
