My ex husband and I have been divorced for about 5 years and I have had the worst time dealing with my daughter about this. At first she lived with her dad but now she lives with me and she has the worst attitude sometimes.
She thinks that if she doesnt get what she wants with me then she can run to her daddy and he will let her have it. She also likes to use the "I'll just move back in with my daddy" ploy and I have had enough.
I have told her that she isn't leaving and I am not baout to let her mess up her future by bouncing back and forth between schools. She isn't happy that I told her this and her dad doesnt help the situation at all. He has done nothing but try to talk her into moving back with him since the day she left his house.
Her stepmother and stepsisters are no help either. They do the same as my ex and have made it almost impossible for me to discipline my daughter when she acts up because she uses that little ploy thinking that she will get her way.
I dont know what to do anymore and I am losing my mind.
If anyone has any good advice please help.
