I need this off my chest
Sometimes it feels like she gets forgotten and pushed behind her sisters shadow in her dads eyes. I try to not hold resentment but it’s hard when I can clearly see one child being favored over the other. I understand why my BF feels the way he does about my SD. With her mom being out of the picture he feels sorry for her and lets that dictate the way he treats his kids. He puts my SD first in every situation. I divide my attention equally between the girls but my BF can’t be bothered to do the same. He tells me that he’s so worried that my SD doesn’t get the attention she needs when he’s not here so he checks up on her well being constantly. He never worries about our daughter. Even when we separated for a week he never checked on our daughters well being but he did tell me how he was worried about SD feeling home sick and tried to manipulate me into watching her for him “so she could be home for a little while” I’ve been told on multiple occasions that I’m not good enough for his daughter and he seems to have no problem walking out the door until he needs someone to babysit for him. I love my SD I’ve basically raised her and the only reason she’s as behaved as she is now is because I’m the only one who cared to parent her. I just can’t stand to see her put up on a pedestal while our other daughter gets tossed aside by him because (SD) needs all the attention in the world. I understand that this sounds super hateful and it probably is to a point. I just know that my daughter deserves to be just as important to her dad as her sister.
