    My sons half sister...

    My son has a half sister (we call her his sister but I'm using the term 'half sister' to explain what I mean) they both have the same biological 'person' (I refuse to say father because he's a moron) I want to get her something for Christmas, I would love to get her something that shows her I love her but not sure what to get, also.....do any of you know what she would be to me, I know it's not step daughter but is there a term for what she is, would love to get a card or something with what she is on it but I don't know what it is....that sounds so confusing so hopefully you know what I mean!

    Aunty.. we call everyone Aunty who is not blood related to us.

    What you mean is your ex who is the father of your son has had another daughter by another woman

    She is no relation to you but a half sister to your son - That's that sorted

    Think you might need to give an age to get better advice

    Dont think she's anything belonging to you kin wise.

    I didn't think there was a term but asked incase there was and I didn't know about it, she's almost 15

    We prefer not to use the half brother /sister term in our house. Just brother / sister. Try it

    You would be best getting a card to someone special. In terms of something to get her depends on age really, if she is a teen I would say something like a charm for a bracelet or maybe a nomination bracelet which you can add charms too (they are only £8 for the standard stainless steel bracelet) then you add your own charms (the charms are anywhere between £16-£30 though)

    It's the same in my house, everyone is brother or sister BUT she's not my daughter so I had to explain to you all what she was

    can't go wrong with chocolates from supermarket.

    I would get her a card to "Someone Special" or "Sister" making it from your child to their sister.

    As for what she should call you just your name, my daughter has other siblings from another partner of her "biological male parent" and I would expect them just to call me by my name if I ever got to know them.

    Men can "father" a child, but they're not all capable of being a DAD, please don't make your son feel he can't call him his father, my ex was the worst sort of a poor excuse of a man but my kids still class him as their father just not their dad even after 22 years of not seeing him

    I agree with the 'someone special' idea or use Funky Pigeon to make a personalised one, you could just put 'happy christmas >name<' instead

    My husband has adopted my son, his biological 'person' has never had anything to do with him, his choice not mine so the only person my son will be calling Daddy is his Daddy and not the person who had some involvement in making him, it's up to you what your children call someone but my son thankfully has no desire to see my ex and doesn't consider him a father or a daddy!

    South African by any chance?

    Me and my siblings all have different Dads, I hated the term half Brother/Sister as a kid because to me they are my Brother and sisters, full stop. We used to say ' No, we are all whole people, not halves'. We are all different colours too, my Mum was a trend setter in those days I tell you (_;)

    My oldest Daughter has siblings by her Father - we just call him 'the sperm' as that was his contribution- my Husband is Dad and always will be - and she sorts out the cards with Brother etc on it as she is a young adult now so makes her own choices.

    Your case is different and it's a nice thought from you too - So if your Son is young you can get him a card saying sister and just sign it inside too on a separate side, or a 'someone special' if a card is going to be from you.

    There are some very nice friendship bracelets around that make nice presents. My son doesn't like the term half brother either, if anyone uses that term he gets quite upset.

    Thank you that's what I'll do, I'll just sign my son's card, it's much simpler and I found a lovely bracelet for her yesterday x
