I want to kick them out!

So my oldest daughter just had a baby 3 weeks ago. Her boyfriend was in the military and just got out. My daughter, her boyfriend, their newborn and his daughter from a previous marriage are now all staying with me until they can get on their feet. Here's the problem - his daughter! She is 4, the same age as my youngest, and has been terrorizing the household. She doesn't listen, she destroys things, she is mean to my daughter, she runs through the house, jumps on the furniture, spits at my daughter, you name it, she does it! I have spoken with her father and told him that he needs to discipline her, but it seems that he is unwilling to do it. He says that he doesn't want to because he was away for so long in the military. Well he has been home for almost a month, I think it's time to get this child under control! I am at my wits end! I told my daughter that I am on the verge of asking them to leave and she said that she is on the verge of asking him to leave also because of this situation! I feel horrible, but I have to put my youngest daughter first. Yesterday, I walked in on his daughter holding my daughter down and trying to tie her up with a jump rope! It is now getting a little dangerous! When we told him what happened his response was nonchalant and he said that there was no way his daughter could overpower my daughter like that. Uhm- my daughter is 28lbs and his daughter is 38lbs, yes she can overpower her! And it's not like I would lie about that! I wanted to kick him out right then and there! Sorry! I really just had to vent and get that off my chest!

It is ok that you got this out of your chest. We are here for you. I agree that this situation should not be tolerated.

It is obvious that they all have to go, ASAP. Put your foot down.

It sounds like really there are just too many people in the house. Why don't you give them an ultimatum.

It's good that you were able to get this out. Always helps to rant about stuff, I know for me it does for sure! Going to have to put that foot down though! Not right at all!

This is not acceptable at all. And it is getting dangerous, as you say. The father needs to understand that nobody likes a spoilt brat. She will become even more impossible as she gets older. Do something before it's too late. I'm glad you talked about it.

I am glad you got this off your chest but he clearly will not intervene in the mature proper manner so he should get the heck out of there
