How do I stop my kids from bullying their stepfather?
My daughters ages 11 and 13 refuse to acknowledge my husband (their step-father) existance. If he asks them a question, they act like he didn't say anything. If he enters the room, they quickly scamper away. They refuse to eat at the dinner table when my husband is there.
They have developed some severe bullying attitudes towards my husband who no longer wants to tolerate it. Their behavior towards him makes him very uncomfortable and it's hurtful. We have been married 4+ years.
Their dad encourages their actions and applauds them when they tell him stories about what they did to my husband.
How do I stop their bullying of my husband?
I'm leaning towards having them go live with their dad because they refuse to change and won't even discuss what they're doing. When I try to talk to them about what they're doing, they leave the room or start loudly playing the piano?
Any advice is GREATLY APPRECIATED. I'm at my wits end. My husband can't stand being so uncomfortable in our home.
