I have a divorced friend who has an 8 yr old little girl.
She has fallen behind on her bills and has asked someone to move in with her. I don't know if this is a friend or a boyfriend. It is a male.
Originally her daughter was ok with this.
After spending the day with her dad she came home and asked to live with her father and said she didn't want the friend to move in.
My friend is TORN. She needs to make ends meet She's going to wind up homeless if she doesn't get this roommate help.
She's worried her ex is putting ideas into their daughters' head. There is a possibility that if she lets this happen the ex & his family could turn the daughter against her. Yeah - in the end - the truth will out but in the mean time, the mom misses out on all these sweet years. But she doesn't want to force her daughter to into a situation that truely (if it does) frightens her or upsets her.
She's had her mom alone for nearly all her life. Her dad has been an on again off again situation until the past couple of years.
