"My boyfriend has a child by someone else and every time our oldest daughter is around, he has the tendency to show off and be very rude.
And when I say rude, I mean it’s as if she doesn’t exist, as if she’s a bother to him when all she wants to do is say hi.
She’s three and he’ll push her away; it’s very disheartening because it’s not the first time. I’ve spoken about it, and I’m always the bad guy in the situation… Anyone else experience this or have any info?"

“Honestly, I wouldn’t let anyone treat my daughter like she is less than. Father or not, they would be hitting the road.”

“Run Forest Run. Don’t look back. It will never change. Make this your positive move for 2020!”

“Tell him flat out and then record him. People often change their tunes when they see how assholish they are. SHOW HIM.”
“Break up with him, file a parenting plan with the courts, and move on with your life. Co-parent with him, but otherwise, remove him from your life. Also, submit any proof of his behavior you have to the courts showing he isn’t being a good parent to your child.”
