My daughter is 6 years old. She knows she is the only child. She is very smart for her age. Her father and I have not been together for a while now. He is in a relationship of his own, as I am too. We don't argue about visitation rights, he skypes with her as much as he can since they live out of state. We are civil. The other day he mentioned to her that she has 2 sisters. Now, these two girls are not his biological children, their his girlfriends. They run about the same age as our daughter does. She questioned him "I have two sisters? I dont know them daddy".
I have no idea how to react to that. I guess he can't be upset once she starts calling her step dad "Dad", right? She asked me "Who are they?" I told her the truth, they are his girlfriends daughters, and their not technically her sisters unless she wants them to be, but in most cases they would be step sisters if they were to get married". And my daughter just kind of shrugged it off.
I am a bit shocked he would of said that to her honestly. Him and I have always had an understanding about things like this.
What can we do? go along with it, or not?
