I have something that has been bothering me and would like input. My husband has a daughter and since we have been together for 6 years I have always been the one to make arrangements to pick her up. My husband never calls his daughter either. And when he does its only due to me saying something. Of course her mom doesnt try to make arrangements either. I guess as long as shes getting child support it doesnt matter. Well since I had our child last year and am still raising mine I havent been making arrangements. I miss my step daughter too. But I feel like it should not be up to me to always call and pick her up. Am I wrong for that? Does anyone else feel her mom and dad should make arrangements? And another thing is my step daughter since I had our child acts like she wants nothing to do with us. I know she is jealous. She is just a child and that is what happens with kids. So that part doesnt bother too bad. Kids are kids. I know what its like when your father remarrys and has other children. What do I do? Just continue to leave it alone. Or step up once again to see her? HER parents obviously do not care enough to do it there selves.

I think the thing that would worry me about all that is if he's like that with one child what makes you think it will be any better with another? Everyone thinks they are that special one, but in all honesty he will be no different with your child. So why in the hell would you have a baby with this guy? As far as the step child goes if she doesn't want to come around right now and they make no effort maybe it's best to just lay low for a while and see what happens.

I think it's good that you are being an adult when the other two won't be. I wouldn't just give up on seeing your step daughter but I wouldn't force the issue. I would call every once in a while to let her know that she's welcome over there. Hopefully the more she comes around the more she'll accept her sibling. Good luck.

He is good with his daughter when she is around, and pays child support. But honestly his ex is his excuse for not calling like he should. He avoids her. And though I may not agree with it, he is still a good dad. And he treats mine like his own as well. That is why I had a child with him. And he does write her on FB also. And I havent given up yet. I have written her as well on FB even though I never get a response. At least I know I have done my part. Im hopeful as she gets older her attitude towards her new sibling will change. But shes at that age as I said and that is why I understand and also dont try to push too much. I cant help but be bothered by her not coming around as much since I stopped making arrangements. Its hurtful. And I know she will be around though come holidays when we are buying for her. But thats the only times anymore.
