Off the record, my 13 yr old girl doesnt want to go home with her dad who is banging on my door. I have tried for the last 2 hours to get her to co-operate to go with him. She has begged him to let her stay. (she can't stand living with him), but he has pulled some "fast ones"
and got full custody. She lived withe since I left in March 2008 til Feb. 2011 and would not stay over night at his house. Both the therapist and the nutritionist (court ordered-even though she had been losing weight during the 6 months prior to Feb
2011 and has gained 30 lbs since he took her) both have tried to convince him to allow her to live with me. I didn't let him in because I felt she was too distressed, though I encouraged her to get dressed and go with him. Question is what is the right thing to do? And what course will he take? (although I think she is safe there, she has told me and Kent Tousaint, the therapist that she doesn't feel safe there. Also I explained to
Karen (13yr old) that I would prefer that she sleep at her dads because of all the work I
have. She refused. Sorry to bother you (you can bill me for a response) but we're scared emotionally.
He is still here and called the police. Then what?
