This is what I would have said “These are his sisters.  This game you are playing is insane.  He has the right to know his own freaking family.  Don’t talk about my daughter like that, you are an adult and should know better.”  I don’t have a problem with confrontation.

Honestly, I would’ve said something.  She in no way, shape, or form should have insulted your daughter.  I would’ve said “While you have proven that you have ill feelings towards your son’s real father, you have no right to insult a young child based on your own hatred.  If he would like sisters, then why don’t you let him come with me for a few days so he can get to know the ones that he already has.  I know they would love to get to know him.”

That is truly a person that cares for no one but herself.  Anyone that would insult a child like that is totally clueless and should not be allowed to bring children into the world.

You should have said something!! The kid has no right to not know his father and half sisters.  You need to fight for custody, there is no reason that this should be allowed to happen. I know you said you aren’t confrontational, but just saying something to the son and walking away would have sufficed.  All of these things need to be documented, and taken to court

Such a bitter woman, her hatred is eating her up. I think you handled the situation well. If I understand correctly your husband does not want the confrontation with his sons so you did the right thing by taking the high road. My best wishes for you.

Can i just say how much i respect your attitude in this? That even though your DH and his ex are clearly in the middle of a very bitter and messy situation, you are able to see what is best for your step-son and your daughters.

I think that the very fact you held your tongue as to not enflame the situation anymore is another sign of your maturity in this situation. If as many encore wifes has as good an attitude towards their DH’s ex, many custody battles would not get so hurtful and devastating for the children involved. I wish you and your husband all the best in establishing contact with your step-son.
