I am so confused as to what to do about this whole situation... I have been separated from my husband for about 3 years... We have a daughter together (which he hardly has anything to do with... But that's another story) well, he has a girlfriend and has moved on with his life and I've done the same. I have been with my boyfriend for about a year now and things are great. He's great with Lilly, she's even told him she loves him. He plans on sticking around and it's not like I threw her in this relationship. We were together months before she came around. For the past few months we have been having "sleep overs" @ his place he sleeps on the couch and Lilly and I have his room since it's a small place. We plan on moving in to a place of our own very soon and Lillys always been on board. Until today.
She went to her dads this weekend and came back just totally against Josh. Saying she don't want to love with him, he's mean, (mean being she can't manipulate him and get her way all the time) she's making up lies saying he gets in her face... Which I know isn't true. He disciplines her by being stern, and taking away privileges such as video game time here and there but 90% of the time they are laughing and being silly and she's never had a problem. I thought everything was ok... But how do I get her to come to terms with the fact that he's here to stay? Please help me, I'm new at this whole mom thing and it seems another day, another challenge. I am typically good at winging it, but I'm at a loss here. What do I do?
