OK, in your other post, you say this man has physically abused you. You need to find a shelter and run. You need to get out. A shelter can help you with legal advice and can support your choice to leave. He is also being abusive towards your daughter and beginning the cycle again with her. Do you have any family you can turn to?

~~~~~I see a problem here that goes way beyond anything that Deesha has suggested things to do. He is abusing her by leaving any sort of marks on her anywhere. Also the way he plays with her being rough and all and like she is an inanimate object is also wrong. You need to do more than just "talk to him" or have "someone like his mother talk to him" Talking gets no where and if this keeps up and someone calls this in to CPS or family services, you could also face some issues and trouble. He needs his bum turned in.

His mother and stepfather say that I let my daughter walk on me. I feel like I'm living in hell where no one respects my opinion

That is surely a sad way of treating or playing with your child. He needs to understand that she is soaking everything up that she sees or listens or experiences. Why don't you talk to someone who the father will listen to like his mother or a family relative. Maybe that might help. Sometimes they think that we as mothers think too much, but we have the best of instincts and we should trust them always.. So give it a try.. It might help.. :)

Hey Sara,
That is really sad and definitely not a wise way to treat a child. Maybe you can talk to him and explain it. Because ultimately your daughter will learn what she sees. I am sure if you can explain it to her father and tell him about the after-effect or learning effect for your daughter, he might see the sense.. Take care.. :)
