My 5 year old was molested by her father on more than one occasion after our separation occurred. Unfortunately the investigation didn’t lead to an arrest so she spent only 52 days away from him before being required to go back to equal time sharing. She has gained a tremendous amount of weight since the abuse began. Her father will not admit what he did and will no longer let her go to therapy to help her. Does anyone have any tips on how to help my little girl to deal with her feelings without feeding them? I may need to go the court route to compel therapy but the cost is so very high and I’m still getting finances back in check post divorce. TIA!
