I have a 14 your old daughter who seems to be so unhappy with her current home life with her father. Her father and I have been divorced for 10 years and I have always believed in making it a high priority to make sure she had both of her parents in her life. That is why I agreed to 50/50 custody agreement. So 3 days a week Sunday - Tuesday she is with her father, step mother, and her siblings ages 1 and 3.
Everyday she tells me horrible stories about how her step mother hates her, yells at her, and separates her from her little brother and sister. And now her father curses at her everyday, threatens her if she doesn't quite dance class, tells her if she goes to live with me he will no longer pay for private school. Now she tells me they are going to kick her out of her bedroom and put her on a pull out bed in the home office. She is so upset
My daughter is a good kid. Never gets into trouble, she is respectful, loving, kind, and her passion is to dance. I want to run to my ex-husband and tell him what is going on and how she feels but she is begging me not to. That if I do he will take it out on her and she wont be able to see her father.
She loves him, loves her brother and sister but I can see how unhappy she is to go to his house. She was shaking the other day because her step mother was picking her up. What can I do? What should I do? Is this normal with teens and divorce? Any advice would be great...
