I'm a single mom of an 11yrd old. I have a new bf we have been together for about 3 months. Every part of me says that he is the one that I will be with forever. I have never had that feeling with anyone I've dated in my past.
My daughter feels like he is trying to take me away from her. I have explained her that is not the case at all. I told her that I would spend more time with her if that is what she needs. Its summer time so she has been going lots of places hanging with friends going on vacation with the grandparents. She is trying to tell me that she still feels that he is trying to take me away. Which I don't see how she can feel that way. Because whenever I try to make plans with her for alone time she all ready has plans elsewhere.
But whenever she is punished for not doing what she is told she throws that in my face tears and all. I don't know how to fix it. I tried to explain to her that we as me my bf and her are not used to seeing each other a lot. We are trying to get used to the fact that we could become a family and that it will take time for us to work out all the kinks so that we all can be happy but that is not good enough for her.
I just don't know how to make her feel like she is not loosing me.
