I am currently on separation with my husband. He has been telling my 13 years old that herself and kid sister are not his children. At the moment, the 13 year daughter is affected that she has been suspended from school as behaviour has changed. The question is how do I make her realise that her dad has married another wife and we will not get together again and that he does not like her. Please help as she thinks that i am the one who is bad.

You don't ever tell her that her Father doesn't like like her for starters.
All I can suggest is talk to her and explain that the 2 of you couldn't live together anymore. Tell her that you love her and are there for her if she needs to talk.
You may even want to get her into some counselling so she can talk about her own feeling without thinking she is hurting you.
If he has remarried then you're not just separated, you must be divorced so it's something that has been going on for a while. You need to tell her that none of it was her fault ( a lot of children think they are the reason for divorce).
