she wants to live with her dad whom has had very little to do with her until now we are scared of losing her he has no place to live he lives with his dad
Greetings from Missouri. First what is the root of the problem? Why does she want to move there? Is there conflict at home? What does the dad say? If the dad has just started being a part of her life he probably is being her friend not a "dad". She probably likes the attention. I would talk to the dad and hope he will be the bad guy and tell her no for now there is no space without crushing her. If you fight it she may try and run away. My daughter is now 22 and I went through a similar situation. This is a tough age, be gentle. She is finding herself, getting interested in boys, you don't want to be too hard on her. She will need you. Don't put the dad down she will be forced to defend him. Remember she is your baby and the law is on your side. You might remind her how you have always been there, want what's best for her, and how much you love her and would miss her.
