Please help StepMom is smacking my child

We're all mothers, but i am having a problem and seeking help. My child came back from her fathers and step mothers and told me her step mom is smacking her butt and makes her feel sad all the time, belittling her because she looks "too much like me." I feel that its way wrong to tell a child "you look like your mother , ewwww!"

My DD is nearly 6 yrs old and just doesnt want to seem to go over there. Her father is refusing to call me Mommy to her and by my first name. I feel just awful for her sake, I feel as if its parental alienation. From what I gather he wants his "wife" to be called Mommy, but calls me the Birth mother.

All I did is document this and we go to court in Feb. really it cant come any faster.

I would tell the SM, Off for starters and make it clear to both of them that the SM is not allowed to smack my child and if it happens again go to court or have supervised visits with child. My husband and I dont believe in smacking so I hope this helps

Keep documenting! Make sure you are getting dates! I hope that things get better for you and your daughter! Good luck
