I was with my daughter's father for over five years. We broke up for awhile and he had a son before we got back together and worked things out when I had my daughter. His son is now 23 months and my daughter is 12 months. Every since his son has been born he has been very supportive to his son which I like about him and knew that this would be a good quality since I was having his child. He keeps his son two nights a week every since he has been 6 months old and whenever the child's mother needs him for doctor appointments etc. he is there. Every since I have had my daughter her dad has not kept her on a consistent basis we argue about when how where and why he will keep my daugher. He says he will keep her when he wants and I cant tell him what to do because he doesn't watch kids for fun I better find a babysitter for that. This has really upsetted me since I have seen the treatment that he gives his son and how nice and cooperative he is towards the mother of his son . This caused us to break up 9 months ago and I have recently placed him on child support. He has gotten very upset with me putting him on child support and has gotten even less cooperative. He calls me ungrateful crazy unhappy etc. All I want is my daughter to be treated fairly by him. I don't know why he hasn't connected with his daughter as much as his son. Is this favortism, is the way he is acting wrong or am I overreacting and what should I do.
