My 12 yr old girl hates me she must the way she talks to me and puts me down. I share custody with my daughter and I know it's not the divorce why she is so upset and angry because she does not act like this with her father.
Her dad and I get along like best friends live in the same town and we both have partners we live with that each have 3 kids themself. We got divorced when she was 3 so in the beginning I felt guilty so I would buy her everything and pretty much let her walk all over me. I stopped most of that and punished her when she was mean. But she still treats me like a piece of garbage at least that's how I feel abused. Verbally abused which is taking me on mentally.
I only want a nice mother and daughter relationship wow what I would not give for that.
She doesn't even let me sit with her to watch a movie but she will sit with my partner her dad or anyone else. I just feel like taking off somewhere and not come back for a few weeks maybe some type of group where I can just come back and find a way to deal with this and make it alright. But it's not alright and it's plan out sad. She sees a therapist but really not getting anywhere with the way she treats me she still is a very mean child to me only.
If I really only knew why. She is very superficial and if it's only that.
Sometimes I want to let her father take her for most of the time so I can find my balance because I really truly can not do this any longer.
