My boyfriend and the children's mother have been living apart for a little over a year now.
His son is very affectionate with me a nd we seem to be bonding already. His daughter not so much.
It's very important to me to have a healthy relationship with the children and their mother. We all get along well.
I'm having a hard time finding my place within the family. My boyfriend and I have decided to get married one day and also to move in together in the near future.
I want to make this transition easy and to make the children feel part of it.
His daughter won't let me cook for her or brush your hair or let me help her. Her mother says that I rule the roost and that I am not a short order cook.
I don't want to suck up to her but I don't want to make her uncomfortable in your own home either.
I guess I'm asking from a step daughters point of view, what should I do with her? How can I help her with this transition?
I how this post makes sense... I have hard time putting my thoughts into words, lol...
