Hi everyone! I'm new here & joined because I need a place where I can share my feelings with other step moms who have been down the road I'm on. I'm struggling with my relationship with my step daughter. She lives with us full time, so it's an every day battle for me. I feel so bad because everything she does just gets on my last nerve. She's not like any other 12 year old I've known. I feel like she's acting out to get attention, & I know I should be handling this in a more productive way, but she just frustrates me to no end. I hate feeling like this & need some help with how to make myself a better person & a better step mom. I find myself not even communicating with her much, just because of how I feel, & I know this can't be a good thing for our relationship. Any thoughts? Thanks!!
