I am a mother of a 9 year old little girl...who I cherish with all my heart. Her father and I have been apart for 5 years now and he lives in a different state. We were never married. I am so tired of him not respecting me as her mother. I am tired of him paying when he wants to. I am tired of him showing up whevever he wants to. Im tired of him making plans without my consent. I am tired of him walking all over me. It hurts. After everything I do and after everything we have been through that this is the way he treats me.
So what do I do when he shows up to take my daughter to the daddy daughter dance when he never even asked me if he could and she doesnt even want to go with him!? What do I do? Do I allow her to see him and then he is going to munipulate her little mind into going? What is best for my daughter? I told him she doesnt want to go with him but he does not listen or respect anything I say. Im trying to stand up for myself as well as my daughter.
Have never taken him to court. Out of fear. Fear of what? Not sure exactly. Planning on taking him. Trying to find the courage. I have never stuck up for myself ever in my life and Im trying now. No one ever taught me how to say no or fight for myself. This is so hard and I feel all alone in this.
