I don’t think you can get through to him. I do think you need to set some bounderies in place tho. Let him know, via email, that you will no longer be accepting calls from him at all. Be perfectly clear that communicationg from now on will only be via email and will only relate to your child, nothing else at all. He will of course test you on this, it will be something you need to stay strong on by not answering the phone and not responding to any text messages from him (unless of course it is an emergency that involves your daughter) Your child’s world is not been ripped apart. he is just using drama as a way to control you. You are not been an awful mum if you do not speak to your child when he tells you you should do.

It is easy to lose control of a situation when someone is manipulating you left, right and centre but you can bring this back into what is acceptable for you and what works for you rather than being emotionally tossed around by your ex. xx
