I’m a woman of 29 and my mum is 47.

I never knew my real dad but my stepfather brought me up.

I have two half-sisters who are 14 and 18.

Mum split up with my stepdad at the start of the year and she has been dating other guys.

My little sister phoned me and burst into tears.

She’s been seeing her dad for supervised visits but he’s been quizzing her about who my mum is seeing and which men she’s had in the house.

She says she can’t cope.

Her dad has told her that Mum has always cheated on him, which is an absolute lie. What can I do?

DEIDRE SAYS: Tell your little sister that her mum is not a cheat and support her in telling her parents how distressed she is.

She has every right to refuse to answer her dad’s questions.

She needs your mum’s emotional support – and for your mum to be sensitive over how she handles new relationships.

My e-leaflet Worried About Mum And Dad explains where to find further support.
