My current partner is the first partner i have had that has an existing child who is 10 yr old. They both live with me. He has her 50/50 with her mum. She's a good, pleasant kid, but I am struggling to connect with her. I am just wondering what is normal - as in how much of a connection or love should I have for her? He wants me to treat her as though she is my own child.
I'd love to hear from all of you of what your experiences have been of taking on someone one else's child in a relationship? Has it all been rosey, or do you have struggles?
