  • it will take time. dont push too hard. as she gets older, deals with adult situations, and begins to look at life through the eyes of an adult things may change. be there like you are, and if you are so inclined - pray

  • Family counseling. She also needs to be told the truth. She is old enough to know, just be age appropriate.

  • Ugh, I had the same thing happen with my Mom. My Dad didn't tell me the whole truth of why she left him till another family member informed me of both sides of their story. I confronted BOTH my parents and finally got a better understanding of why she left my Dad. After that I became a lot closer to her and I am so glad someone finally told me the truth.
