How can I get my daughter to like my girlfriend?
My daughter is 3. I've known my girlfriend forever. We had kids w/ other people then our partners left, we were friends for a year, we started dating 7mo ago. We didn't tell our kids until February. My girlfriend helped me raise my kids. Their mom left when they were 1 & 3, so my oldest was effected by it more so than my daughter
My daughter has aspergers, her counselor said that it could have a play in everything. Another thing her counselor said was my daughter is always the youngest & wants to be older than somebody. My girlfriend has 2 sons, 4 & 6. She likes them, but, as most people were when they were kids, wants to be older. The counselor suggested my girlfriend & I have kids but no thanks. Both of us are totally done with babies & I don't see how someone could say something so serious to make a toddler feel better for something that's likely a phase. My daughter loved her before we told her we were dating & the boys seem okay with it. My girlfriend said maybe she feels like I'm being taken away. I only leave without my kids for work, which is from 7am-2pm, not long. I want her to like her as my girlfriend. I've been trying to deal with it alone but I can't.
Please & thanks
