HELP: “My man does not like my child from a previous relationship”

Anonymous from Umlazi writes:

 

I have three children, two girls and a boy. My first-born child is from a previous relationship and my new man discriminates against her. He doesn’t treat her as well as the other children or buy her anything. When I confront him about this, he says I make a big
deal out of nothing. Please help.

If a man comes into your life and you have children, he needs to be prepared to love
them and raise them with you. You cannot have a relationship with somebody who separates your children and hurts them in anyway. Your daughter needs you more
at this age and any person who comes and rejects or ill-treats her right now will push her to the streets. She will end up looking for love in the wrong places. Be careful of focusing on your own needs and compromising your communication
