My daughter, Abbygail, and her father are not very close. He'll call her often for a few weeks then not once for several months. I truly believe this is messing with her emotions. He doesn't seem to grasp the concept that his actions, or lack there of, are hurting her. I stopped accepting his calls for this very reason. She doesn't really ask for him a lot, but lately she's been bringing up very random things involving him. My dilemma is . . . . if I'm trying to sever their communication, for her emotional benefit, then what do I say if she ever asks to call him. Do I say he's busy or do I let her call him? I'm just so worried about him hurting her. Please tell me what you would do!
