Recently, my husband and I obtained guardianship of a 16 year old girl whose family (parents and siblings) died in a car accident. My husband is the principal of the small Christian school where this teenager has attended for all of her life. He has taught many of her classes over the years. She has had deep conversations with him. She loves him so much. She even calls him "Grandpa." (Both my husband and I are 65.) Whenever he asks her to do a chore or something else at home, she willingly obeys. However, whenever he's not home, and I ask her to do something, she refuses to. She's very disrespectful to me. I've told my husband about this, and he's asked her about it, but she lies to him and says that she always obeys me. My husband, of course, believes me about the situation. Why is she doing this? How can I get the situation to change?Answer Question

Maybe it will just take time. Obviously she has already formed a bond wth your husband, it may take some time to form the same bond with you. Is she in counseling???
