My 14 year old daughter acts like she hates me,My ex and I have joint custody.She lived with me from age 5-11. We were so happy. She was loving and cared about people so much.I agreed to let her live with her dad when she was 11. He is very wealthy and buys her everything she wants. He just got remarried about a month ago.They moved into a new house in another city. I don't even know her address.(I do understand that he is breaching our court order) He lets her go on her computer 24-7.She even eats in front of her computer. Every year it just seemed to get worse.I have not seen her for 3 months. When I call her she is so miserable and says hateful things. I try to explain to her how much i love her but, she always says that Love is an emotion that doesn't come naturally to her.I should add that her father despises me and has not talked to me for years,I do know that visitation should not be left for a child to decide. He is suppose to talk to me and make arrangements..I'm going to have to go to court and try to make sure she is OK. In the meantime my heart aches because I miss her so much. I'm a mess because this is not the happy little girl I raised. I cry every day.Is this just teen drama? Is her father manipulating her?
