My husband an I have four kids. Two are his from his first marriage. I have a daughter from a previous relationship and then we have our son. My problem is, my daughter sees my husband as her dad, she is five, we met when she was 1 1/2 yrs old. They both love each other but they are in a constant fight all the time. She doesnt really respect him and he gets irritated. But she doesnt listen to him when he is being a little ruff with her. I keep telling him that she is a very independent child, she has a very strong personality and she likes for people to be mellow with her. She reacts better that way. He says that I am taking her side. He says that I am telling him to do what ever she wants. Is not that. I feel cornered. I want her to respect him but he also needs to gain her respect. He is not affectionate with her. He helps her and he plays with her a lot. He takes good care of her to. But for a child they also need hugs and kisses specially when he is not her father. So what can i do?
