comment How do I handle when my step kids parent buys them everything they want?
I don't have much sympathy to be honest, if you think you have it hard imagine how the father feels.

comment How should infant refer to Father (biological) and Father (step)?
It is terrible to hear this and stories like these break my heart. He should ONLY be calling you daddy.

comment Handling strong need to protect family
i agree, if you want the capacity to defend yourself and your family then you need a gun, anything else will just be security theatre.

comment How do I help our 3/yo go through stress
@sbi the statistics are clear when it comes to children with divorced parents. Divorce is inherently selfish, you may be sick of your marriage but your children are not, It is all they have ever known.

-1 from me. Answer seeks to treat an adult woman as if she is a child that needs to be protected from the consequences of her own decisions.

I agree with @fkraiem as long as he is honest from the start and doesn't lead her on then as an adult she is responsible for her own choices. If she is hurt it is not your sons fault or responsibility.

comment Need suggestions on how to deal with my 5 yr olds defiance and aggressiveness
Kindergarten can be pretty hostile places for active little boys. There are rarely any men or male influences/role models to be seen. Plus there is the whole divorce thing. Maybe less punishment and more love and understanding is required.

comment Effects on children and parents of marriage breaking up
The statistics are clear, children do better when their parents are together and the impact is greater upon younger children. Also there is no such thing as an amicable divorce according to the latest research. dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2095181/…

comment Should I really be insisting that my daughter finish eating her meal?
dessert isn't a reward for finishing the meal, it is part of the meal.

I don't think you should turn your child's meal times into a penance for their supposed privilege. It serves no purpose at all.
