Step daughter is very needy.
Hello. I'm seeking any advise as to how to deal with my needy stepdaughter. My step daughter lives half of the time with her dad and half with her mom. I've never seen her interact with her mom. She speaks as a 5 year old instead of a 10 year old and always request the help of her dad for everything. (Even the most simple things like picking up something from the floor). Whenever we go out as a family, she clings to her dad and holds on to his hand and cups his arms like you would see a couple do. She interrupts her dad's and my conversation all the time and its constantly seeking her dad's attention. I think she is jealous of my relationship with her dad. We devote time to her so it's not like she's lacking that. Lately when we go out as a family, she and her dad are always separated from me and my biological daughter. I don't know how to talk to my boyfriend without him thinking that I'm over reacting. Any advise?
