My oldest daughter refuses to visit her father. How do I handle this? I have 4 children, and just yesterday had my final divorce hearing. The divorce has been going on for 2 yrs and has been very emotional. While it's been hard for everyone, my oldest says she can't stand her daddy and begs not to go visit. He has been very mean to her and unwilling to reach out in her direction (other than to complain about it). I want to protect my daughter but I also want to encourage their relationship. HELP!!!
