Stepdaughter refuses to say name
Ok so I have been with my other half for 18 months now and I have 2 kids as do I.
his eldest (5) completed refuses to say my name. We have tried nicknames, silly names whatever she wants to call me but she just refuses to instead tries to get my attention by tapping at me; which i ignore. She will ask me something and I will say who are you asking? She will respond with you, I will ask who's that and she will go in a mood.
ive tried talking to her to see why she doesn't but she has no reason. I did think it was because I was asking so her dad also asked privately but just got don't know. It is really frustrating and actually hurts me. To the point that I am thinking I just remove myself from their lives completely. If their dad has them then I will not be involved.
does anyone have any suggestions
