I’m a 37-year-old divorced guy. My girlfriend is 36. We’ve been together three years.
My daughters, who are 13 and 16, are well-behaved. When my eldest had her ears pierced, my girlfriend had a go at her about it.
But when her sister’s boys aged eight and ten come over, she is lovely to them – even though they can be a handful.
I feel she is biased against my kids. I love her but I’m dreading rows at Christmas. I need to get her off her high horse before I call it quits.
DEIDRE SAYS: Your girlfriend sees your girls as rivals for your love but her behaviour is damaging to your daughters.
Tell her you understand she feels threatened, that you love her and want to reassure her, but being a father is an important part of your life. Be firm and tell her you won’t tolerate her being unkind to your girls.
If she can’t be grown-up enough to make an effort she’s not right for you.
