    My girls Dad and I split 3.5 years ago. He was always a lovely dad and couldn’t do enough for our girls. Since he left to be with another woman the relationship between us has been toxic. He has many narcissistic traits and makes everything my fault. He never considers the girls needs and when they stay with him they aren’t made to feel welcome by his new partner at all. We have a court order but he still wants everything his own way and puts the girls needs after his own. He has blocked phones, stolen their savings and refuses to buy them the things they need when they are with him.

    My youngest plays football and as the training has changed and conflicts with his time with her  he has left the football group chats and is refusing to take her to matches on his weekends. She is devastated and now wants to quit football which she loves.

    My girls tell me he is far more involved with his new partners children than he is with them and runs them around but refuses his own girls.

    I worry about the effect his behaviour is having on hers and her older sisters mental health. I would really appreciate some advice on how to help them deal with this. They are desperate to feel love from him.
    I cannot communicate with him as he just blames me for everything and if I suggest things I’m controlling and if I don’t, I don’t consider him.
