My two year old step-daughter always fights with me when it's time for a nap. I don't think it's because I'm her step-mom because she fights with her dad too. But she doesn't with her mom or the day-care. I just don't understand. I'm tired of the struggle. She kicks, screams and sometimes tries to bite. I'm almost 20wks pregnant and I can't have her kicking me the way she does... Anyone have any suggestions?

if she does it with you and her father, but not her mom or her daycare then she may feel defensive about her mom.. i know she's only 2 but it may be helpful to have a talk with her about why she may be angry with the two of you. she might want more time with her mom, or she might be upset that some things are moving too fast. she's only two and she already has a new mommy and is about to have a new sibling.. try having a talk with her in a calm environment without yelling or fighting or accusing
