Ok. So I hope someone can give me some advice. My husband of 6 years is very rude and hateful toward my daughter who is 14 years old. He has a 17 year old daugher. He acts as though the 17 yr old is the perfect one and my 14 yr old is the evil one. He is constantly speaking bad of everything about her (music, clothes, friends, etc.). Yet his 17 yr old is doing the very same things and nothing is said to her. Actually much of her actions are far worse than my daughter's. I know my daughter's actions warrant discipline and I do that. In fact she was grounded for 2 weeks not long ago. He does not get violent or anything like that but everything my daughter does is wrong in his eyes. Just yesterday on the way to a Christmas dinner an incident happened. My daughter was dressed conservatively. She had a very nice dress on with leggings underneath it so she was covered from neck to feet. And my husband made the comment "She looks like an idiot" when my daughter got out of the car. And it is basically because he doesn't like her leather jacket. This is really pushing me to the point of leaving. I do not want to end my marriage but I can't allow someone to treat my daughter that way. I have tried to tell him how his comments hurt me and her but he never listens and says whatever he wants anyway. Anyone?
