Parents of Teens and Young Adults
Not sure when to address this.
My daughter just turned 7. She has two half sisters raised by her BM, and at least one half-sibling through her BF. We have an open relationship with her BM but no relationship at all with her BF, plus limited info about the BF’s other kids. My daughter is already an aunt twice at her young age. Her half sisters are in their late teens. Although my daughter has met her half sisters, my daughter has never made the connection of who they are. She refers to them as “those ladies”. When should I be open with my daughter and tell her about her half-siblings? Should I wait for her to ask or should I be more proactive? At what age do kids start thinking and wondering about whether they might have siblings?
