My 6 year old visits her father every other weekend for 2 nights.
She sleeps on a mattress in the living room at night. I agreed it being a temporary thing but 2 years later she’s still sleeping on a mattress in the living room.
Yesterday it transpired that he gets up in the morning, makes her breakfast and then goes back to bed for a few hours with his girlfriend. She isnt an early riser so we are talking 8/9am. She’s already been awake for a while before her breakfast is made when he wakes up. My daughter says this happens every weekend.
I’ve already had to speak to him lately as she stays up far too late when there.
Is this acceptable? I know I can not control what happens when she is there- that isn’t what bothers me. She’s only 6- I feel this wouldn’t be an issue if she was older.
Sorry to hear of your worries. You must be tearing your hair out ! Im unsure why having got up to make her breakfast anyway why he doesnt just stay up. Maybe you could tell him your fears and hopefully he will respect your view and change his habits? Maybe him and his girlfriend should sleep on the mattress and she gets his bed. Best of luck sorry i couldnt help more.
