I'm at ends with my ex over how much responsibility our daughter should have. She works and goes to high school and she gets so stressed out with her dad (who she lives with) because he wants her to do more than she has time for.

Her grades are the most important thing. I agree with Evelyn, talk to him and find out what is going on, and what his expectations of her are.

You need to talk to her dad and find out what is going on. Is she keeping her grades up? If not I can see him wanting more responsibility out of her. Is her job too much along with school? Ask her work schedule. It could be that she is working more hours than she should to be able to complete homework.

He seems to have resentment towards me for moving out of state and takes it out on her demanding more from her. Grades are good but doesn't have much time to herself.
