My boss has a pre-teen daughter (10) who is overweight and who has come from a rough time with her mother who abused alcohol, did not care very well for her and her brother, etc.
My boss has issues with her being overweight and wants her to be healthy and lose weight, but she has a hard time understanding her as she has always been very thin and healthy.
The step-daughter wants a lot of attention which is hard for my boss as she works a ton managing two branches, she has never had kids and is still adjusting to having them around (they recently moved in with her and her husband).
I am going to offer to be her step-daughter's "Big Sister" and want to be a good role model for her to show her how to not only live healthy, be active and such but also to help her have a good time and get some of that one-on-one attention she desires.
How can I be a good role model to her and help her step-mother become more understanding of what her step-daughter is going through in growing up as she has thus far and where she wants to go in life, etc?
