My step niece has just got an email address and my father has given it to me. He says he’s sure she’d like to hear from me. This is a 10-11 year old step niece I have never met , and know next to nothing about other than she seems to be quite precocious .
I’d find even emailing a child I’d met, and knew quite well, difficult in terms of knowing what to say.
I sense that I’m expected to email her, and feel quite thrown by this. If I don’t email I guess I’ll be branded the unfriendly step uncle.
