I have always ran the buffer between my daughter and her dad, that is till now. Actually she is my step daughter and she no longer lives with me (her dad and I broke up about 5 months ago) She is unhappy, his new girlfriend's son (who lives with them now) is causing problems between my daughter and her dad and her dad is not taking her side. Now my daughter is 18 and definatley old enough to speak for herself. And my ex and I do not have any kind of communication between us. I want to call him up and read him the riot act, tell him that he will lose his daughter if he does not ease up and treat her like an adult....but I can't. Not only will he now listen to me, but it will make the situation between the two of the worse. She is on her way over here to spend the night at my house, I am happy to have her at anytime but I hate the thought that she feels the need to leave her home to have peace.
I just wish there was some way to fix this for her but I accept the fact that she is an adult and has to fix things for herself. I just know that if I was still there she would not be in this situation.
