I am very frustrated right now. Since turning 16 (and hubby buying her a new car) my SD has only spent on average 1 day every few months at our house. Now she'll only come if dad fills her car up with gas, and this was encouraged by her mom who has custody, although we only live 20 miles away. We pay child support, car pmt and insurance. Now, she was invited to prom as a sophomore and SD expects us to pay for a prom dress too! I feel like she is using her dad just for the money. And he feels guilty bc he doesnt see her every day so he gives in... Is this a teenager thing or am I being too sensitive?
