Husband and I got separated early Dec and he said he was stayn with his uncle. He was going to take our daughter to O.C. for the weekend, turns out he moved in with a woman he met on myspace a few months ago and brought our daughter there. I think it was unfair and selfish for him to do this when everything is so fresh in my daughters mind, she is only 5. Then my daughter couldnt fall asleep tonight because she was sad and crying that she missed this girl, that did hurt me. But I can get over that, my problem is that he did this so fast that how many times is he going to do this to her. I wouldn't let my daughter meet who I was dating or whatever until I knew things were serious, and never after a month separation. How do I help her deal with this?Answer Question

well she isn't his Fbuddy, they live together. And he could do this a million times or non at all, marry this woman and live happily ever after. I will tell you what I know and have seen from working with kids through things like your going through now. As long as you are the loving, carrying, understanding mother you were tonight, not speaking badly of anyone, and allowing her to forge relationships, even if they wont last, but also being there for her if the person should go away then she'll turn out to be a happy, balanced child. Capable of handling anything because her mom was the same.

I have to say I agree with armywife too, he is being totally irresponsible by doing that so soon after you guys had split up, does he not realize that young children get attached very easily and what happens when they decide to break up and she gets hurt again?
