Question

Hi, I am having trouble dealing with my step daughter that is 15. My husband and I have 5 children together. He has two and I have three. My husbands daughter has severe anger and behavioral issues. Due to a recent event that took place on our family vacation my children are pretty much “throwing in the towel” with the situation. They feel it’s very unfair for the family to be subjected to her behavior and angry outbursts. I don’t know what to say to that. I’ve always encouraged them to be kind and loving no matter and I figured she would come around. Things have grown way worse. She visits every other weekend and then just whenever she wants to. Her primary home is with her mom. Any suggestions with how to move forward as a family given all the tension? She seems to do ok at school and makes good grades. She does struggle with friendships at school but is very involved.
