My partner & I have been together for 15 months & live together. I have been a part of his 13 yr old daughters life for 12 months. We have her every 2nd weekend. As she lives 2 hours away from us & 20 minutes away from my partner’s parents, we usually stay with my in laws on our weekend with her. We usually bring her to our place about once every couple of months. In the last 6 to 8 months she has been getting disrespectful towards her father & I. She has developed an ‘I want’ attitude. My partner does not see it being a problem if I discipline her for being disrespectful especially if he is not around. We just had a really bad few days with her & her mother has said that she does not want me to discipline her child, that it has to come from my partner. My partner’s daughter has also decided that she doesn’t want me around on the weekends she wants it to go back to being just her & her dad. My partner is supporting me 100% but I am feeling like I have no control. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
