I married a Frenchman and was living In France for 3 years until his stepdaughter's rages against met added to my sense of feeling culturally alienated and I fled a few months ago ...My stepchildren were madly in love with me (reciprocal) for the first year; the little boy, now age 9, still is. The little girl, age 10, wavers between love (I wish you were my real mother) and hate (hysterical crisises in which she lashes out physically at me). Her mother is mentally unstable and violent and has attacked me. (The French courts rarely give the father custody unless the mother is in a mental institution or jail-- terribly legal system). The daughter is not mentally ill but angry! But in the end her crises and violence against me 'got rid' of me. I am returning this summer to give it another try. My husband who is heartbroken says she has changed. Well, she cannot even come Skype to look at me. He refuses to acknowledge that the problem remains and I am afraid of going back into a bad situation. How is the best way to handle my returning for the summer, without this anticipatory anxiety? thanks!
