My boyfriend of two years needs advice on his 16 yo daughter wanting to live with Mom full time with no "scheduled" visitation with her dad. Mom lives out of her school district, however. He feels it is because she has no rules at Mom's house and lives just a block or two from her boyfriend (with whom she sleeps with - Mom is okay with this, Dad is not). Her Mom is more of a best friend to her than a parent. Dad is more of the disciplinarian. Mom shows the daughter the text arguments between the parents, so the daughter gets mad at the Dad even though she doesn't know the whole story. Mom likes to tell him how their daughters (16 and a 20 year old) would rather stay with her than him and she doesn't have to buy their love (which he does not do, but he does pay for their cars, team registration fees, their car insurance, books for college, health insurance, etc.) How do you counteract a Mom that hates the Dad? She is the one who cheated numerous times and left him, but she has the younger daughter thinking he is the bad guy.
