The Child Psychologist'S TakeSo today was a trip to my eldest's psychologist (we started to see this doctor on the advice of the pediatrician about 4 years ago, for unrelated issues).
The session started with me filling her in on what's going on, the potential plans to move to Europe, etc. She's aware of the separation with him in the ba
Psych expressed extreme concern when I discussed the plans to move the kids to Europe without EX - how would they cope with out him, etc, he provides "emotional" whereas I provide "stability" - which actually really pissed me off, although I kept a straight face, I'm sure my eyes were daggers!!!
Anyways, then she talks with eldest child while I leave room for about 40 minutes.
Then I go back in and child goes out of room for a follow-up.
Turns out now psych doctor says, my child is more tired of the situation than anything, my child is NOT concerned or upset about father, child is just ready to move on, and maybe a move is the best thing!!! For the child of mine with the most coping difficulties and anxiety & etc., get her AWAY from her dad!!!
What a switch eh!
And something for those "staying for the kids" to REALLY think about. I know my situation is not the same as everything, but when something's dysfunctional...
