My 15 year old daughter hates her step father and now I feel like I am in the middle. She has not seen her biological dad since she was 3.(I have been with her step dad since she was 4). Because of this I guess you could say I over compensated for his not being there by giving her almost everything she needs and wants. At first she was disrespectful to her step dad but lately it's been toward me and her teachers. He becomes upset and yells at her because she walks all over me.I don't know what to do. Her step dad and I just separated because of this issue and it's killing me. I feel like I am in the middle having to choose one or the other. I love them both dearly.
Now she thinks I don't care about her and she has started cutting. I hate to see her doing this to herself. Any suggestions
