.. I am the mother of a beautiful 6 year old little girl. About 2.5 years ago her father and I seperated on a very bad note (domestic violence) and since then so much has happened... Last year he got married and within a month had filed for full custody, (now let me just say our daughter has always been with me, he has never held a job or really stuck around long enough to get comfortable in our lives, he was more just there to stay home with her while I worked.. He was always out or doing something else, when he would get her on the weekends she would end up at his mothers not with him).. I know that this is ALL fueled by his wife because up until they got married (within a year of meeting) he couldve cared less. Now with that being said, she has told me multiple times she refuses to respect me, she will do as she pleases with my daughter because she is married to her father. Recently she took my daughter to a doctor (whom she has never seen before) and I have yet to even find out what the doctors appointment was for after asking for the doctors name or the paperwork multiple times. When I call on the weekends to speak with my daughter, I get no responses and no replies.. We are headed to trial in July and I just need help coping and how do I talk to my daughter about all of the things that are going on?.. She is confused and scared to death that she will have to spend the summer with her dad and step-mom.. How do you explain to a 6 year old thats it's going to be okay, when as a Mommy I'm not even sure myself how to handle it??.. Please help Moms..
