I am having such a hard time dealing with my daughter being around another woman. A back story on our situation: My daughter is 9 her father was out of the picture for the first 7 yrs of her life due to drugs. He straightened himself up and took me to court for visitation. For the last 2 yrs things have went relatively smooth. He now gets her every other weekend from friday to sunday evening. He has not had any woman around our daughter this entire 2 yrs. He has recently gotten a girlfriend. They have been dating for about 3 mths. this girlfriend is much younger, also a recovering addict, has children of her own, and does not have a job. My childs father took our daughter to his gf"s house yesterday for their first meeting. my daughter said she was nice but that her dad paid more attention to his gf"s kids than to her. She cried and said she felt like she was going to be replaced. She also said that her dad was kissing his gf the whole time they were there. Now i know a 9 yr might exaggerate a bit, but this does seem like something he might do. my heart is breaking for my daughter who is going through this and I am also having my own issues with it because I have never in her 9 yrs had to deal with another woman. I have been her sole provider her entire life. It was bad enough having to let him back into our life by the courts but i just do not know how to deal with another woman being in my childs life and all the problems that have already occured from just the first meeting. ????? any advice would be very much appreciated!
