I have an 11 daughter & a 7 year old son. I have been divorced for 7 years now & my ex husband is constantly coming & going from thier lives & my daughter gets really upset over it & I'm having a hard time explaining it to her. I don't want to talk negative about him but don't want to make excuses for him either. My son doesn't have a bond with his father(actually I have to fight to get him to go over there when my ex wants his weekends) & is constantly teasing my daughter about thier father & how much it upsets her. I've tried to talk to my ex husband but he is one of those men that if you say anything about the kids to him you are accusing him of being a bad dad & starts a huge fight over it. The bad thing is I don't know if my daughter is upset cause she isn't seeing her dad or cause she isn't seeing her half brother & two half sisters all younger than her. Can snybady give me an idea on how to help my daughter with this?????
