Defensive child. Help wanted
I been with a woman for 4 months now and she has 10 year old daughter who's very attached to her mother(mamas girl). She does not like her father at all as she witnessed him beating her mother when the little girl was young. I help them out alot with Bills,groceries, etc. Everytime me and her mother talk or discuss an issue the little girl decides to back her mother up in every possible way(choosing her side) and her mother even tells her to stop getting into adult buisness. Is this normal for a young child to act like this? Like all defensive and choosing mother side? Not trying to start a fight conversation but I'm new at being with someone with a kid. Any tips or advice for me so I can avoid complications?
