I am a single mom of a 15 year old daughter. When my daughter was 3, her dad and I split up and I was the main person taking care of her. He chose to spend approx. 5 hrs a week with her up until she was 11, when he decided that he wanted to take on having her spend time at his house so he wouldn't have to pay child support. My daughter and I had always had a close relationship, but recently, she has been so incredibly rude and disrespectful! Her dad can do no wrong, but I am always the bad guy! Are there any other single moms that have this situation where you are the enemy and dad is always the good guy? I tried to make sure she had a good Christmas and got her things that she wanted and still, she treats me horribly. I called to say Hi to her today when she was at his house and see how her day was and she was very short with me and said I bother her! It was so rude and I was so hurt.She has a chip on her shoulder toward me all the time! I went in her room and took away the gifts I got her and she will have to earn them back by showing respect. Is that the right thing to do? I miss my daughter I used to have!
