  1. how do you have consistency with my 6 yr old step daughter, when we try to be consistent at our house and have a routine for her and our kids and then she returns to her mother and boyfriend and there is no consistency with anything, rules, bedtimes, etc… she rebels when she comes back to our house and we feel like we have to start over every time?

  2. It is hard and your are met with unique challenges, but honestly as a step-mom myself and having a blended family, keep being consistent with what you do in your home. Our kid are very smart and resilient too – they know what they can get away with and if you allow her play the card of being in two homes, she will. Kids can learn that there are different rules and expectations in two homes…just like learn there are different rules for home and school or church. The best thing you can do is be clear on what you expect and follow through with what happens when she makes a choice to not follow. Know you are not alone, pray and move ahead with her. 🙂
