I think you should keep the communication open. It is truely best for your step daughter for her parents to all get a long and this will just make it a happier environment for her. If you cut ties with her it could be really awkward at school plays, birthday parties, etc.

I’m so jealous!! Just count yourself lucky she doesn’t have a colorful nickname for you and doesn’t call screaming and crying all day and night. I’ve never even spoken to my stepdaughter’s mother because the first time we met she was too busy screaming that I had kidnapped her child and trying to punch me… it’s so sad because I really thought we’d be friends and all sit together at t ball games and stuff 🙁

I wouldn’t talk to her constantly or consider her a real lifelong friend, but I do think it’s great that you have the lines of communication open and get along well. That’s amazing and I don’t think you should try to end it. It’s a really tricky relationship to have but in the long run your stepdaughter will thank you both for it.

I think you’re doing well by keeping the focus of your relationship your step daughter, and not bringing in other personal affairs.  Keep it that way if you can.  It really is best for your step daughter that the two of you have a good relationship, and at least be able to communicate.

@CountryGirl80:  I think if you make a change in your relationship she might feel slighted. If you enjoy her company, I would continue to talk and find things you have in common. It wont really hurt anybody for the two of you to be friends, as long as it stays on the level it is now and doesnt cross those boundries. Did something happen to make you question your relationship with her? If not keep things the way they are and try not to over think it:)

I would just stear away from the personal conversations if you can. I imagine that might be kind of hard with all the baby talk? 

Keeping the lines of communication open are good. It’s great for a child to know that all is well and everyone is getting along. It was horrible as a kid knowing that my parents couldn’t even be in the same room together.
