Hello, I'm trying to fig out what's going on with my soon to be 7 yr old step daughter. I came into her life when she was 2 yr old & I'm the only woman she's known aside from her mother. These last cpl months when she comes over she has a HUGE attitude toward only me. I've gone out of my way to schedule time together, paint her nails, buy her flowers...it never seems like anything is enough!! I do know that we have rules & expectations @ our house & there aren't any @ her mothers. I get talked back to, I get dirty looks, I get her just stating in her room of her Dad's @ work, telling everyone goodnight except me...??
Any ideas/suggestions would be very helpful!!

Thank you for replying. I've asked her that as has my husband while I've been @ work, she always says no, nothings wrong...but then continues with the same behavior. I expect some push back or resentment, but I wasn't expecting it this early!!

Ask her if u have done something to hurt her feelings. Sometimes just opening the door and letting out frustration will help and she will know you care.
