So in talking with my kids today about random things, it appears my youngest is being bullied by my WS's daughter / stepsister to my son. She is 18, he is 9. She puts him down and accuses him of things when I am not in the room. I found this out today, but have had suspicions she is not always honest and polite due to other things. WS doesn't want to believe it. I have pointed out things before, but now that my son is crying to me and already has a pretty sensitive side, I want to let her have it! I told him to handle it and tell her to leave her bullshit away from my kids. My older son verified he overheard something along this line, but thought I had known and handled it so it's not storytelling. What would you do? My WS truly is chickened of his own kids, which is another issue to address. I am the badass sadly. This realization made me stop and think maybe making him move and separating his and my kids is ok after all. I had guilt over the blended family thing before, and it would be hard to split them, but maybe it's best since neither WS or their "mother" (and I use that term loosely based on her inability to parent her kids) will act like parents and their kids think they are in charge!
