I have spent the last 8 years doing homework, driving to athletic activities, doctor's appointments, shopping for clothes, drop off or pick up to her drunk mother's and she has just gotten nastier as the months have passed this last year. Fifteen months ago she said she couldn't take living 50% of the time with her mother anymore. Sadly the courts won't do much to a drunk even though Psychologists say she should not live with her. Children will get to the point where they will be willing to leave a parent when they are 13 to 14 years old and that is what happened. I have always been nice but when the nastiness reached peak levels at our house, I started flipping her off. I had many talks with my husband and he would just continue to kiss ass and give her money and drive her everywhere. Basically he would talk softly and kiss her ass and not put any consequences on her. The driving included going to a high school out of our district. She also refused to ride a bike on a part time basis when either of our situations caused a conflict in getting her to school at the designated times. She is lazy and entitled. Things blew up today. There is a responsibility to your children but he has been told by a counselor that this is Fighting by Proxy on his ex wife's part but I think he continues to sweep it under the rug for the most part. I have never been a hater but I hate this girl. Big alligator tears on her part tonight. I told my husband that monies I will receive in the future will not be going to benefit her in any way and that includes upon my death. I am sure she only cares in relation to getting a car and clothes and maybe college, but my money will not be her way to any of that.
