I have recently separated from my husband and just trying to work out access.
I’m struggling in regards to him having our daughter overnight. To give a little background we have two boys and a girl (12,10,5). Our problems largely began when he refused to help get up in the night for our daughter when she was a few weeks old and thus moved into the spare room.
She still doesn’t sleep through the night and I am concerned about her sharing a bed with him. Mainly because he is a heavy sleeper and could crush her if he rolled over in the night but also in the last 2 years he has tried to create a relationship with her whereby he feels he is “wrapped round her little finger” (in his words). Which has only resulted in spoilt behaviour from her.
During lockdown he pretty much ignored our sons, to the point my 10 year old is now refusing to see him. All of his attention has been on our daughter.
Just wondering if anyone else has had this experience and how they have dealt with it?
This isn’t about stopping him seeing any if our children, I have no problem with this. I have spoken to him about his relationship with our daughter and my concerns but I am looking for a way forward.
