SD doesn't fit in with our family.

That is what my 7yo DD told me this afternoon. 

She said that she doesn't consider her a sister like she does my other two DD and my other SD. She said she is just always there and that she doesn't like her and wishes she would go home already. My son, who was also in the car, agreed.

How should I deal with this? Just because I don't like my older SD and have a difficult relationship with her doesn't mean I don't want my children to know her and love her as a sibiling. How do I encourage a relationship between them?

If that was my DD I would jump her shit for being mean spirited and talk to her about the importance of family.

First I think you need to work on your relationship with her and lead by example.

I'm not going to yell at my daughter for stating how she feels.

Hmmmmm. Pretty sure your dislike for her is brushing off on your kids.

It's step parents like you that scare the hell out of me. Can't you be the adult and work on your relationship with your sd. Your kids have no right to talk about her that way. Work it out as a blended family. You sound like the evil step mom
