My 13 year old stepdaughter, "Mandy", told her Dad (my husband) that she hates me. She is often rude to me or storms off and doesn't talk to me. I hae a 9 year old son and onthe weekends I take him and Mandy out for bike rides, walks whatever. We are always out having fun. It is my belief that the girl really likes me a lot but is afraid to admit that and feels that if she likes me that somehow she is betraying her mom. My husband divorced her mom 8 years before we even met so I am not a homewrecker or anything. I just don't know how to handle any of this and me and my husband are getting sick over it.Answer Question

With teen girls I think its a constant love/hate relationship. I mean one day, my niece (I'm her guardian) loves me, then two minutes later she hates me. As long as I she doesn't go as far as disrespecting me, normally I try to let the hate vibes go.
Like someone suggested. Have a girls day out, and chat. You both may be surprised. Good luck, and hang in there.
