My dd is turning 7 in a few weeks. Right now I feel like she hates me.
Lately her moods just change so suddenly. Today for example she had the day off school as she had an allergic reaction in her eye.
We were lying in bed most the day watching movies together, not long after DF came home from work I asked her to tidy her room. Then it was a mood snap. She tantrumed and said she wanted to go live with her "real" dad.
Her real dad she saw this weekend for the first time in months due to him "not being able to make it" for her actual birthday so he got her a bday present and came to visit, even though he only came to town for the races but I didn't tell DD that, I was just happy she was happy.
So DF thought it would be a good idea to try and snap her out of it by packing her things and hitting the highway in direction of her dads house in the hopes she would come to and say sorry and realise what she had done wrong.
She didnt care. She kept throwing around insults about DF not being her real dad, and saying im the worst parent lots of **** that really hurt, but I ignored and pretended it didn't bother me.
It got to a point where we turned around and she got upset and said she wanted to live with her dad.
We feel rejected and I feel like nothing I do is good enough. Nothing I do for her is appreciated yet her dad does something small for her and hes the best person ever.
Wtf do I do. I don't know how to fix this behavior. Is this a phase, am I doing something wrong? She always comes back around and says shes sorry and won't do it again, but a day or 2 later it's the same thing.
Is she just a spoiled brat? Is she just hurting due to her dad popping in and out of her life as he pleases.
DF has been dad to her for nearly 4 years now and he feels so unappreciated, he does everything for her but she just treats him like ****.
We are lost with all of this and need some advice!
