What differentiates these relationships is that Anne always tries to seek the good in her family, and has a true affection for them.
Because Anne's commentary on ther others in the annex is mostly negative, it is logical for her to use pseudonyms Anne's relationship with Margot constantly changes.

However, Anne still strives to find the good qualities in her mother that she can't find in herself. Anne has a true affection for her father. Her one desire is for this affection to be returned. Anne is greatly pained by the fact that her father doesn't even notice that he treats Anne differently from how he treats Margot. At first, Anne thought that Dussel was a pleasant person. She was told that he was loving and good with children. However, after living with him for a few days, she quickly discovered that he was strict, old fashioned, and often gave lectures.

However, Anne is still considerably polite to her. Anne Frank's relationship with Mr. Van Daan. is neutral.
