Might be a silly question but would like the opinion of others.
I have adult stepdaughters. One is young and into her own world but respectful of me. One I have come to the conclusion is a hurtful b*&ch. I have told my husband that “I am done” with her. I am tired of being used and ignored. He said he understands. I told him that I have done nothing but be kind to her and to her children but I am sick and tired of being ignored on texts that require answers. I don’t speak to her unless it’s needed.
In the past, SD has sent text messages and I have responded but not right away (on purpose) but I did respond. Just recently I sent a FB message so I could see that she had received it…the message needed an answer and she read it but did not respond. SO here is my question…
Do I ignore future text messages/Facebook messages and be childish like her or do I respond but use minimal words?
I am NOT a mean natured person. My MIL who was also a SM said – Always keep smiling and don’t let them know they are getting to you. I feel if I ignore her – it will give her just enough ammunition to blow something so small into a major family fight and therefore causing problems for my husband and me.
