1) letting my child (6yrs old) see a family member who only comes around and calls 2 times a year
2) not letting her see this person, because it could bring up unwanted memories and questions i just cant answer
I kind of want to do number 1..but at the same time i dont. If this person comes over, it could get my daughter asking questions about her dad (her dad is a dead beat) but yet at the same time, she DOESNT EVER ask about him, or anyone on that side of the family..so i dont want to bring up stuff that shes forgotten..and then all of a sudden she would be reminded of it..ya know?? why bring up bad memories if i dont need to..BUT at the same time at least this person makes an effort..even if it is only at birthday time and christmas....and i know if i DONT let her see this person it COULD come back and bite me in the ass down the road..its just so hard because she doesnt talk to anyone about her feelings..and if she does she says shes "fine"..
