Re: Struggling with DD Choosing Her Dad Over Us
I'm divorced and so his my bf. His daughter is 8 and she struggles with this. They have 50/50 custody and its pretty common for her to want to be with mom when she is with dad and to want to be with dad when she is with mom. They have a fairly good divorce so we can all talk about it.
Keep being as loving and consistent as you can! Try to not say anything bad about her dad and if you can come up with some positive things that would probably help. Its hard as heck for me to say good things about the boys' dad but when I do my son will really open up and talk to me about more things. Hang in there!!!
