Hello, anyone out there that has any advise on how to help help? My 12 year old daughter goes to visit her biological father for a few weeks during the summer then comes home with a nasty attitude towards her stepfather and even myself. How can I help resolve this? Her biological father has no money to make the drive and meet for their weekend visitations, he has three children with three different mothers and maybe working on a fourth, lives in a two bedroom apartment with his girlfriends three small children, drives a beat down old car while me and her stepfather are capable of providing her with a normal lifestyle .Both myself and her stepfather work hard to proved a comfortable life for both our children, typical middle class lifestyle, own our home, two decent vehicles, her own room, computers, tablets etc.... But every time she comes home from her visit with her real dad she gives a spiteful, I can't stand looking at you attitude towards her stepfather.
It's like she takes her frustrations out on her stepfather instead of her completely F*** up of a biological father.
I do my best to point out that her stepfather loves her and works hard to give her all the things she has. My husband has become so tiered of this that it is driving a big wedge between them and I'm afraid it's going to permanently destroy their relationship and they will never be close the way they were when she was younger.
If anyone has any suggestions on what I can do to help rebuild the relationship between my daughter and her stepfather and how to get her to stop being such an attitude filled brat would be great!!!!
