My daughter is 2, but her dad doesn't come around much, in fact he doesn't come around at all, and I don't know how to do this all by myself. But how I can go about talking to him about why he doesn't come around, like what his reasons are. He keeps saying that he wants to, but never does, and the subject of him signing over his rights has even brought up, and he claims he don't want that, but his actions show otherwise. How do I handle this...

I have already tried that. He doesn't come around period. He won't take her with him, I don't trust him, he is NOT an active role in her life, and he is NOT consistant when it comes to her. It has nothing to do with coming to see her in my home, he doesnt want to see her, and I was asking how do I handle that situation. ANd his own terms is staying away from her

Why does he have to "come around" and can't just pick her up and take her with him? The problem with a mother saying that a father must come and visit their child in HER home is that it DOES discourage him from visiting. Maybe if he were allowed to visit with her on his own terms, rather than yours, he would be more likely to visit with her? Just a thought anyway.
