My bf and I have been together for almost 2 yrs and he has an 8-year-old daughter who was just diagnosed with ADHD. We have her every other weekend and 4 wks in the summer, plus time at Xmas and March Break.
She has a hard time as she lives a 2.5 hr drive away from us and her Dad is here and my 6-year-old son is here all the time so she thinks that my son is loved more than she is.
It's challenging because her mother seems to decidedly hate my BF more than she loves their daughter (evidenced by things she says and does with their daughter and in conversation with my bf).
And it's a shame, I've gone out of my way to have a good working relationship with my ex and his gf for the sake of my son, so as a mom I get angry that my step-daughter's mother cannot do the same.
