I know other parents with stepchildren, and they say it's incredibly hard to be a stepparent because you don't have any power. If you try to act like a responsible adult and offer an opinion about childcare or discipline, you run the risk of everyone resenting you as the "outsider", even though you're right there in the trenches with them. And it can't really change much, though for some of my friends it got better over time. I hope things calm down for you & improve!
