Hi all! Hope you are having a good day. I need advice, bad. About a month and a half ago we got custody of my 5 (almost 6) yr old stepdaughter. She's smart and sweet as can be... as long as "datty" isn't around. When he is around, she turns into an annoying monster. She hits him, sasses, and even drew blood the other night biting his leg, all he was doing was watching television. He doesn't discipline. The worst part is he will baby her non-stop, even when she's being a "sassy pants". This morning when I got up for work she heard me bustling around in the kitchen and she yelled out "datty" from her bed, so I poked my head in and told her it was really early and daddy's still sleeping, why don't she try to go back to sleep. I walk past her room five minutes later and he is loving and hugging on her. I know that sounds petty, but it's just the constant feeling that I have no room in this house or say over that what happens or how are kids are raised. When she asks for something and I answer her, she will do anything to get her father's attention to get his answer, like I never said a word. When I walk through a room she is in, she will back way against the opposite wall to get away from me, like I'm going to hit her or something. I have two boys from a previous marriage and I don't know if I'm just upset she wasn't raised in the same manner as they were or what. It isn't jealousy, my husband is sure to give everyone attention, me and the boys included. But, when it comes to her, he's so "babyish" it's making me angry, losing attraction to him even. She will go places with me, like to the store, and she's sweet as can be, hold conversations with me and everything, but the minute he enters the room, she talks baby talk, demands for him to hold her, says "datty" so many times I want to scream. She has visited us many times before we got custody, so she's been comfortable. She follows him through the house, waits outside the bathroom door for him, when he gets up for a coffee refill she's right behind him. Dare we have a conversation, she must come in and start screaming "datty, datty, datty". I'm not sure what to do, but it's to the point it's already hurting the marriage, I want to go. SO, my questions is what do I do from here? Is it me? Is it my problem that I need to get over? Do I need to give them more time (I make sure they have alone time together often)? I just want all the kids to be treated the same, I'm so angry it isn't that way. My husband is good to my boys, but how do I get him to stop babying her so much and make her a part of our family instead of the "princess" he makes her out to be. I just want all the kids to have the same rules!
