I'm 19 and I deal with a 25 year old child for a baby dad .. It's mean to say but that's how I feel. Growing up with 3 brothers I was aware that not many guys "grow up" but mine were always taught to take care of their responsibilities. I was 16 when my daughter was born which makes her 3 now and her father wasn't always there from the beginning and it wasn't until his mom FORCED a DNA test to prove she was his (even though I knew she was his, of course he denied) about a year ago was when he decided he wanted to step up and be a "dad" and since than he's been nothing but a poopy dad to be honest .. I still support our daughter and he will ask for her sometimes but he still has NO job and doesn't do much to get one .. he has also been trying to force working on a "family" and personally I moved on and found someone better for me and my daughter but he has a HUGE problem with someone else helping me raise MaKenzie and honestly I don't think he has a say considering I am the who has raised her from the beginning .. He's also never signed her birth certificate considering he wasn't there for her birth and he's been fighting me lately to have him put on there so she can have his last name instead of mine but I don't think I should just yet .. I've tried to deal with this on my own and I've confided in my mom but she hates him and tends to only make things worse .. I'm only looking for advice and not to be judged .. please help ..
