Hi, I am wondering if anyone has any advice or books/websites I can share with my daughter. She is nearly 10 and is struggling with her step mum at her Dads house. They are doing lots of building work so I think her Dad is less available and she is really struggling – I found her googling “what to do when adults are mean” I know the woman as we were friends (ex left me for her) so she isn’t in any danger its just dynamics and personalities clashing. I can’t bring it up with my ex as he won’t hear it from me, he would think it is a case of sour grapes etc.
I have suggested that she think of specific cases where she feels she is treated unfairly and talks to her dad but if anyone has experience or advice on how I can help support her and give her tools to not feel so stressed out by it that would be great. I am sure I found something online ages ago when I didn’t need it!!
im not in the same situation as you but my daughter also feels the same sometimes but in my situation the min her dad gets a new partner he becomes mean to her and makes her feel like she anit wanted or will let her down or not see he rfor months ect I myself get stuck as what to do or say maybe he could make a day for him and her just them to a walk to the park even just a hour or 2 and they can have a chat and talk about things that’s what I tried hope it all works out
