Ok so my daughter is 1.6 years old! I became a single mom when I was 4 months pregnant. my daughters father gave me a very hard time throughout my pregnancy and even after she was born about seeing her. He would go months without seeing her at a time. I even moved out of state and still he showed no interest in worrying about her. I found a new boyfriend and when my daughter turned one her father decided to "want to be in her life". So I allowed it! He gives me $125 a month for child support and sees her every other weekend. He doesn't call much at all in between his weekends. My main issue is that when my daughter gets home from his house she acts inappropriately such as throws temper tantrums rolls her eyes at me and recently started to hit me. I feel like she's unstable due to the transitions. He doesn't really know her to well so he always complains about her being hyper or crying! I came to the idea that I would not allow her to spend the nights with him any more but I don't want to be a bad "typical babymomma" as this generation would say. I must add Im ok with his new girlfriend. Hes been with her for almost 2 years now so im all for the co-parent idea Its been 6 months they both have her every other weekend! Any advice!?
