ok the basic of the story, mypartner has 2 boys 17 n 15, who are def his, his ex also has a daughter, who my partner considers as his daughter as she has only ever know him as her dad, however his parents do not consider her their grandchild and this has caused so many problems, there are major doubts about her paternity as there was only a slim chance that a encounter could have produced her and when she was born the ex proudly announced that she was someone elses...
but the issue we have is that the almost 15 yr old is just so damn rude when it comes to he getting anything from anyone, ie her bday last year we gave her a really nice watch, bracelet n earing set and $50, we got a gee thanks but i dont wear earings and at xmas she got $20 and not even a thanks for the cash, what else can u get a teen for both when they are a couple months apart and mum buys everything she wants and leaves us nothing to get? also at easter we got her heaps of chocolate and absolutly no mention of a thanks at all...
i might add the boys are good and say thanks for what ever they get and usually only want cash lol.
so my question is do we give her nothing and see what happens and deal with the rath that follows or bight the bullet and just give her $20??
