The new man can throw spells(CURSE PEOPLE TO DO BAD) and one time I got child abouse at about 9- 10.

I do live in a step family home. I have a step mom and a step dad. My step mom tends to leave me out and always treats her kids better then me and my older half sister. My step dad accuses me of things, like stealing from him, and I really don't. He has it in my moms head that I do steal from him. It's really hard because my mom was married to this other man (my ex step dad). We moved to my ex step dads when uneasy six, they got married when i was seven, and got a divorce a week before my fourteenth birthday. I had a sister, three brothers, three nephews, and a niece. I miss my ex step dad soo much. My mom and ex step dad have been divorced for about four years and it still gets to me. I wish they could've worked it out. I'm seventeen and its still really hard to deal with.

sealover talk to your mom or dad then maybe they'll help PS no offence but what does that have to do with stepfamilies?

i dont like my stepmom michelle i jux think shes after my dads money. he has a high-paying job an she dont i dnt liyk the way she treats my father either

My Grandpa, my Step-Grandma, and my Grandma, all smoke. First of all, my Grandpa smokes HUGE cigars that cost 15 dollars each and he wonders why I don't kiss him on the cheek like when I was younger. When I tell him why, he gets offended and tries to avoid me for the rest of the day. Second of all, my step-grandma gets very offended when I try to avoid the smell and say something about it. She says, " I'm an adult and I can do whatever I want. Don't be nosy, it's rude. You are a child, I'm an adult, we are not equals. " Third of all, my Grandma smokes 2 packs of cigars each day and she runs out of money and then calls my dad to pay her and if she doesn't take her medicine, she says foul words and says VERY bad things about me and my family. Then, a week later, she apologizes, then, it's just an endless loop. I've tried everything and anything I say offends them or shocks them immensely. I have NO idea what to do. HELP!
