My daughter is 14 yo. I filed for divorce last Febuary . My soon to be ex is a narcist who belittled me and controlled me for 20+ years. His second victim was my daughter, always saying she was spoiled or on the computer all the time, or complaining her room was not clean etc...(She is a sweet child that has straight A's is helpful with her younger brothers and wears hand me downs.) In July the parenting time coordinator ruled, after she called the police on dad for locking her in the house with no phones, computers or tvs. while he took her brothers out for some fun, that she does not have to be with him. Now they are forcing her to be in therapy and spend time with him. She says she hates him and the therapist who has threatened her. I was wondering if there were any adults who have been in this situation as a teenager and feel it was benificial or if it had lasting negative effects
Sometimes you have to force justice by appealing or even suing them. You know that locking her in may qualify as kidnapping or child endangerment. Talk
to your friendly police department, they may have a councillor. They would be great to have on your side at an appeal.
Try to have a great Christmas
