I am considering sending my daughter to go and live with her dad. We have been divorced since she was 3 and the kids have always gone to his house every second weekend. The truth of the matter is for the last 2 years she and my partner have not been getting along and now they seem to have no respect for each other. She is a good girl, but she has her fathers attitude and as much as I try nothing seems to work. We hit the same wall every single time. I feel she has very little respect for me aslo at the moment as everything I ask her to do, she puts in half an effort. And has an i dont care attitude. I have 4 children(2 to my ex) and she is the only one that causes grief. She is also being disrespectful in class and again wants to blame every one else. I want whats best for her and I honestly cant see that her living with me is. I am finding myself constantly saying you can go and live with your dad, I have had enough. I feel devastated that i say that, but the words just come out because she pushes my buttons and talks back. My question is would sending her to her fathers be the right thing to do?
