    I would accept that she doesn’t not see him as a parental figure…. yet. She may struggle with trust that he, like her Dad may leave. Obviously you can’t allow bad behaviour but ask him to be patient with him- she’ll realise when we are in less stressful times and she’s older that he has been a wonderful parent to her.
    You have been her constant so you prob feel secure to her- as tough as it is if that’s what she needs then that’s what will help her. You can get support from the school nurse (her school will have the number) or the gingerbread helpline- they might have some tips.

    This is such an awful time, especially if you struggle with mental health. You are not on your own though- I just think about it like riding the storm…… it has to be over soon enough,

     

    take care x x

    I have spoken to a solicitor about this and they advised that it could take about six months to get a court hearing due to COVID…… obviously this would depend on where you live. My advice- fight for your son- start court proceedings- it would prob cost a couple of thousand but unless there are any safeguarding issues the court will likely give you up to 50% custody/ access so it will be worth it. Plus- if she sees a letter from the solicitor she may realise and do the right thing- good luck x
