what would you say

My daughters father spends every christmas with his son and he sees his son everyday. So is it wrong to tell the father that he should spend at least one christmas with his daughter. I mean it is not her fault that she lives in GA with her mother. It has been time where I have thought about moving to ALabama (father lives) so she could be closer to her dad. But I would be losing a good job and everything that I have established here. Would you have a talk with him or just let it go?

  • It's not wrong to tell him that. However, I have just decided to let her Dad do what he wants. I don't want to make him see her when he doesn't want to. I'd rather have her all the time then force him to and in turn her not have a good time or feel it's been forced.

  • Well you have a good point but if she don't ask for him and he does see her on a regular basis I would just let it go...she will catch him next time on a different day...IDK GL

  • skype could help. online videochats. idk if u can do it but my step mom could figure it out to talk to her son out of state. it is better to see their faces. they could set up chat times. see if you can download something from the site and email it to him so that you can enable their relationship to blossom rather than just telling him to do it (he probably doesnt really know how with her being out of state - travel is very expensive and you shouldnt have to move with modern technology.)

  • I think you should talk to him, if it were me, I would atleast try to work out something so she could see her father during the holidays, who knows if you speak with him about it, he may just come and get her. you will never know if you don't ask!

  • Talk to him about it. You might be surprised, he might want to come and visit but doesn't know how to ask. But of course be prepared to hear an excuse.
