I am a single parent of a 9 year old girl and I'm finding it very difficult to convince her that I love her. She has asked me a couple of times.
I work very odd hours of days, mostly am at home whrn she;s at school and when she's coming back home, I'm leaving for work, I come back when she's asleep even on weekends. I barely have time to spend with her, also because of my responsibilities at work, i also tend to find myself organizing social events.
I don't know how to show her and convince her that I love her. I tell her and spend as much time as I can, when I can, I buy her presents go places with her when I can.
I also have a boyfriend that she isn't so fnd of so whenever i spend the night with him, i cannot tell her I ws with him so I have to lie about where I spent the night.
What can I do?
