My step-daughter is horrible. And she hates me. (let me clarify: she isn't my step yet as her dad is only my fiance, but we live together). Anyway, my fiance and I fight ALL THE TIME. I don't think we will make it. Anyway, my future step's mom left her when she was about 7...just told my fiance that she didn't want Zoie. So her dad raised her. Her mom has VERY recently started back in her life, and Zoie is estatic. But both my fiance and me have a feeling that her mom is up to something. Anyway, Zoie and I fight constantly. I know that I'm the 37 year old...walk away...etc. But it is so hard!!! And each time Zoie and I fight, although she starts her mouth on me, my fiance screams at me and says I'm picking on her...but I'm not. He lets her call me "crazy" and other derogatory words as well and never truly scolds her. She is my nightmare. I dread her getting home from school...I am lost and confused. These are tough times in my life. Please...any advice??? Thank you.
