    Default Stressed out Rant/Advice

    My 4 year old just called me from her dads house hysterical and begging to come home... This isn't the first time she has done this. She hasn't been going to his place much lately because she has been refusing to go and I refuse to force her. After calming her down as much as I could over the phone I spoke to him and he said she was fine one minute and just started "carrying on" the next. Which infuriates me because for starters she's not carrying on she's upset and not for no reason. And then to not tell me what had even happened infuriates me even more. I asked where she was and he said lying on the couch with him. (They would be watching something he likes because she isn't allowed to watch kids shows at his house) an I suggested going into bed with her and reading and book and that's what I do here and he out right refused saying that that's not how he does things at his house!! I'm so frustrated and over his lack of concern for her and not wanting to compromise on anything even though its in her best interests. Now I'm at home stressed out and worries about her and just want to give her and big hug and make it better but she's not back till Sunday afternoon

    How awful that he doesn't want her to be happy and comfortable at his place

    Is it court ordered that she has to go?

    I wouldn't even let him have her overnight if that's how things go.

    I have stopped her going in the past few months because she refused... But she was quite happy to go this afternoon and went without any tears. There is no court order in place ATM. I have just started counselling with relationships Australia to discuss my frustrations with him and things I can do to try and make him communicate and work better with me as a team
