HOW CAN I GET MY KIDS TO WARM UP TO MY HUSBAND TO TRY AND MAKE MY STORY A BERTTER UNDERSTANDING I WILL EXPLAIN THE BEST I CAN. MY 2 OLDER DAUGHTERS ARE FROM MY PREVIOUS RELATIONSHIP WHEN THEIR FATHER AND I SPLIT HE KEPT THEM. BUT ENDED UP LETTING HIS MOTHER RAISE THEM. I COULDNT AT THE TIME MY CHILDREN STILL LIVE WITH THE GRANDMOTHER.SAD TO SAY I HADNT STAYED IN THEIR LIVES CONSTANTLY. REASONS I CANT EXPLAIN VERY PERSONNAL BUT I AM TRYIING MY BEST NOW. WHEN MY GIRLS COME OVER THEY WONT SAY HI BYE ONLY SOMETIMES ALMOST AS IF THEY ARE SHY. LET ME MAKE THIS CLEAR THEY DO KNOW HIM AND KNOW WHO HE IS. I JUST WANT THEM TO TRY AND HAVE A BETTER RELATIONSHIP THEY TALK TO HIM AND PLAY AROUND WITH HIM JUST A LITTLE SO MAYBE I SHOULD LEAVE IT? WHAT CAN I DO?

Give it time and be patient. Focus first on you building a better relationship w/ them. He can and should be included some of the time, but YOU need to definitely do one on one time w/ them as well. Just do some casual family fun... game night, movie night, stories, taking a walk, whatever things they like to do. Mainly time and patience though.
