I am a step "mother" to 5 year old twin girls. The reason mother is in quotes is because I am not married to their father, yet we have been together for 3 years now and we have been raising his girls. The girls have supervised visitation twice a week with their bio mother and the following day one of the girls is often extremely angry with me, to the point of yelling and throwing things at me. We normally have a good relationship but lately she has been, more or less, hateful towards me and tells me that she only likes her dad. Everyone I have talked to says it's just her age or that she is tired because they are now in Kindergarten. As she has gotten older she has been more angry and it's really prominent after she spends time with her bio mother. I'm at a loss and I don't know what to do....please provide any advice. Thank you.
