I need help, my dh is driving me nuts! I have been married to dh for 6 years, dh has always expected more out of dd...respect, responsibility is a huge gripe for him. DD is an honor student in the 9th grade, she loves reading, video games and listening to her ipod. Dh gripes about her not getting outdoors and doing stuff..he calls it laziness. I try to tell him that everyone doesn't like the things that he does. DD's dad is not in the picture hardly, he might see her once a year. I feel like I am always having to referee the fights between them! Sometimes the fights start with dd making a smart remark..usually she's just picking at dh, sometimes he's in the mood to pick back..sometimes he goes off on her in a rant about respect and responsibility, yada yada! We have a 4 yo ds and ofcourse he can do no wrong. I swear sometimes dh is just laying in wait for dd to mess up! Me being the bio mom to dd, I choose my battles, I mean the girl is not a bad kid at all! It seems I can look over the small stuff, but dh will not look over anything! I've tried to explain to him that he looks over the small stuff with our ds...but, he thinks I am just taking dd's side..I swear they are both going to stress me into a straight jacket! Does anyone have any advice? I know I have rambled on here, but please help!
