My six year old SD is driving me insane and I have no clue what in the world to do about it! SO and I have been together for 3 years now and his daughter absolutely hates me! According to her, I hate her, which is not the case at all. I love her just as much as my own DD. But no matter what I do, she still hates me. I can look at her and she hates me. I can talk to her and she hates me. I can leave her alone all day and she hates me. I can have her help me and she hates me. No matter what, she hates me! I'm sick and tired of her telling SO that I hate her when I don't. She is constantly sassy with me, gives me an attitude and always does the opposite of what I ask of her. Her mother has never been a part of her life, so she is not an influence. As a matter of fact, when she was only a year old she told the court to give her to SO because she wanted nothing to do with her. So she is no influence what-so-ever. We do know that her mother has Bi-Polar disorder and we are starting to signs in SD. I don't if this has anything to do with it, but I'm sick and tired of her hating me. I know she doesn't like the fact that rules have changed since I've come into the picture. Before me, all she had to do was whine and everyone jumped to her side and gave her WHATEVER she wanted! Well since I've come into play, that's changed. She hates being told no. I'm at a loss as to what to do. I just want to give up, but I love her too much to do that to her. She needs a mother figure and I'm willing to do that. But she has got to stop hating me! Please help me!
