She mentioned her "dad" today update* update2...update 3...
My dd mentioned her father today. I had told her awhile ago who he was but she said didnt like h I'm and just liked my dad whom she has known as her papi since birth. Well today she said she made a picture for her dad. I told her she won't call him that right? And she says I will because he is her dad.
How do I handle this? He doesn't deserve that title. Has not seen her in over a year and half. Pays child support because it's enforced . Never wanted her. Is basically a joke of a father. But it is her father the only one she has. Can't force him to have a relationship with her but don't want to bad mouth him either.
Any advice please!
* Update* I emailed him and it is up to him intiaciate it not us and to write back to set up a day and time that works best for our schedule.
*update two....he wrote back and said Skype would be better. I told him I do not have the old computer so I will try to download it on my iPad. So then we are going to try it today. But she probably will hide.
Update3 ...so I downloaded Skype but it never happened so I deleted it. She doesn't want to do it. She doesn't want to call him. She wants him to call her. I don't blame her. I always h as inciated it with pictures and visits in the past. Anyways, I told him it will not happen and let's just go back to way it was. No response as usual but he doesn't check email on weekends so I am not expecting a reply.
