I have a 5 year old daughter and a 3 year old son. My divorce was, and continues to be, messy. My ex had the kids 4 nights last week (he works out of the state so only sees them once a month for 4 overnight stays). When the kids came home, my daughter told me that her dad duct tapes her hands and feet to play "Jail" one night when she was with him. I asked her if all the kids were duct taped (the incident took place at his girlfriend's house where he shacks up, and she has 2 kids of her own). My daughter said that she was the only one who received this treatment. There is no physical evidence this happened, and I know she has a vivid imagination, but she has been very detailed about it. My ex was abused by his uncles with duct tape when he was a childunder the guise of "playing."
Is her word enough to make phone calls? She will not see him again until the end of May, but he will have the kids for 9 days, his summer vacation visitation. I am freaking out! What do I do?
