Today’s OPP is from Erica and she needs your help! Here’s what she said: 


Yi Slacker & Steve,

My husband and I have a 4 year old son together and I have a son and a daughter from my first marriage. My husband treats our son very differently then he treats my oldest kids. It’s like because they are not his kids he is harder on them and loses his temper easier with them. He lets our son get away with everything. He will take our son out to do stuff and leaves the other kids at home. He has no problem dropping hundreds to get a new Xbox for our son but doesn’t want to spend a dime on new school clothes for my oldest kids. I’ve tried talking to him about it but he says he doesn’t think he treats them any differently. How do I get him to realize that he’s not being a very good dad to my kids from my first marriage?



What advice do you have for Erica?
