My ex-husband lives at home with his mother, his step-dad, his 5 brothers and sisters, and his infant niece. When my dd stays over there she has to share a room with her aunt who is only a year older (9 years old). The other day she told me that her aunt (the 9 year old) is mean to her, locks her in their room and beats her up so that no one can hear, breaks her things when she's staying with me, and has even pointed a knife at her on 2 separate occasions and said, "I'm not afraid to use this and if you tell I'll cut you up." Ummmm......who the heck is watching these kids?!?!??!?!
I confronted my ex and he said that he had no clue that the knife thing happened and that the aunt must have done it while he was at work. He said that the girls do fight a lot but that my dd hits her aunt back and that they both lie A LOT. My dd swears that the knife thing happened twice and her story never falters, I have no reason to not believe her (she never lies to me). The aunt was adopted from a woman with schizophrenia and is known to have problems....but that house is so crowded, there's no where else for my dd to sleep. Is it time to take dd away from her father? WWYD?Answer Question

This is a hard situation but come on, if someone had pulled a knife on my child they would NOT be going back over there. I would set up visitations in MY own home. I understand him having to work but I would make the arrangement not to hurt him, to protect my little one.
