Do i keep fighting or just leave it
Answered 1 year ago
Its taken alot to actually write this but im completely torn
My 13yr old has gone to live with other parent. No contact since they went apart from a phone call earlier this year pretty much saying they hate me, and never want to see me- court orders are in place but the other keeps getting away with withholding my child
The manipulation is beyond a joke getting the child to not want to be here, the lies they keep saying to people to make me seem unfit
I don’t know if I can keep fighting anymore
The toll its taking is heartbreaking
No warning this shit fight was going to happen at all. Everything was normal till it wasn’t
Im at a loss on what I should do
Please no negative judgment as im already feeling like shit
Have an answer?
Have children always been this manipulative?? Or is this new?
I guess all you can do is seek lawyer advice but i think at This age children are allowed to decide what they want to do with access 😔
So much for trying to have boundaries and not let children run the household. Whatever.... 😢
I also have a box full of letters I haven’t sent.
I know that they are still young and I know that its tough having parents who split especially when dv and narcissism is involved
Who ive spoken to has said going back to square one and going family law court is best approach but that did alot of emotional and mental damage last time
The last changeover was completely normal, happy ,positive and then 5days later that was it.
Ive spent months trying to prove allegations against me aren’t true, doing all i can to prove im a good parent and person
Can you write to your child? Even if it’s birthday and Christmas cards I think on the long run they’ll realise you haven’t ever stopped thinking about them.
I think in years to come your child may be grateful you never gave up. 13 is still so young.
