Weekend visitiation during sports. What do you do??
My DD is 12 years old. Her father moved 3 hours away about 6 years ago. She is in school sports and a traveling softball team. Some times her activities occur during her fathers weekend, especially her softball tourneys that will be starting this spring. Her father is complaing about the time that he will miss with my DD while she is participating in these sports. I have never told him that he could not come to her practices or games. I have always told him when they are what time and where. He chooses not to come. My daughter really wants to participate in these sports and I always tell her that there may be times that she will miss with her Father. I kind of feel bad and that I am doing something wrong because he complains about not being able to get my DD. But again, he chooses not to pick her up or even to participate. He has also told my daughter that if something happens on his weekend then she can not participate. With her traveling softball team she has to be at every practice and every game no exceptions (unless it is health related). Now mind you, he was supposed to pick up DD today for his weekend but then texted me and said he can't because he doesn't have enough money for gas. This happens quit a bit. I am angry at myself because he makes me feel guilty about all of this. What do you do in situations like this?
