My 6 year old daughter has just started to talk about the emotional abuse she is experiencing at her fathers house from both her father and his partner.
She is recounting the relentless questioning to try to form a picture of me, her Mum, in order to criticise and undermine how I raise her and how we live our lives.
She is clearly distressed by the clear contempt toward me and the conflict this raises within her regarding who to stay loyal to.
Tonight my heart feels like it’s breaking a little too much to bear.
4 and a half gets on… 7 court appearances, CAFCASS, solicitors, domestic abuse support workers, judges, debt collectors, CMS, therapists, child arrangement orders, and yet I still feel totally disarmed to protect my vulnerable child from the man who helped to create her.
Thanks for sharing your experience on here. I’m sorry you and your daughter are having such a difficult time. It sounds as if you have lots of agencies involved who can advise you on your situation, and I hope you continue to use this forum and receive support from other single parents on here.
