  • You try to make her time with you as welcome and comfortable as you possibly can. You assure her that her mom is ok. She just made a mistake that she must pay for.

    How old it the girl? What is her mother in for, how long will she be there?

    Daddy needs to take the role of parent and make his dd feel like she still has a loving family.

  • A shoulder to lean on if she/he needs it. You can offer support but not force it.

  • Her father needs to be involved in the step daughters life.And you can't step up and be mom now.But you can be a friend, buddy, mentor.Step kids have to figure out alot of stuff for themselves.no matter what you tell them,they still won't believe you.Have patience and a good sense of humor.You'll need it.
