My children's father left the relationship when I was pregnant with our youngest. Ever since then the kids have all lived with me and he visits pretty regularly. He and I have no communication whatsoever at his request. The courts have allowed him to communicate through a logbook and I have given up trying to coparent with him.
I know if I allow her to live with him I will never get her back and I don't think it is healthy to live with a parent who does not want to coparent. On top of that his girlfriend, the woman he left me for, has decided my kids should call her mommy too. I have begged them to stop, ask the courts to intervene, prayed, but noone can do anything. So now my kid, all of them, refer to her as mom. Its been 3 years and the oldest is only 6 so it was easy to train them. I hate them for this, more than anything.
They refuse to attend any school activity if I am also in attendance. I truly think these two are crazy. So yes, I am pretty confident on my decision to not allow my 6 year old to live there, but I am growing tired every day with her insults of how dirty our house is compared to his, how much happier she would be there, etc. I cry when she isn't looking and wonder what to do. I am so tired. Thanks for reading.
