My 14 year old daughter wants to live with her dad. First let me say that I have always put her needs first and made many sacrifices ( as mothers do) and have always tried to protect her from harm ( as mothers do) I'm empty without her I am a mother who loves being a mom and loves her child. I'm angry, hurt, and feel helpless. And they treat me like a second class citizen which iam not. I dont want to lose her and i dont want her to miss out on the blessings that mothers can be to their children but she is pushing me out of her life. She will call when she needs a ride or clothes or wants to go eat and then after that its back to drop her off at her dads house. Dealing with her self consuming father (who would sell his dying mother to the highest bidder ) is impacting me deeply, of course he provides my daughter the big house, the expensive things and gives her so much reign of the house. Im so tired of the constant Arguments and feeling of being of no importance to My child. Its not okay with me and i dont believe any good parent should constantly turn the cheek the other way to keep the peace. We are human beings and we matter too.It's not right for a Parent to suffer such pain when all we do is focus on what's best for our kids. There is a lot to this story but I will just start here and hope to hear from compassionate and understanding mothers who might be able to help. I appreciate it so much.
