I joined CafeMom today, in hopes to find some sort of support, comfort or help. My daughter is with her dad for the summer and is saying that the best thing for our daughter would be for her to stay with him and start going to school in Boston. I live in MO, I am not re-married, he is. I do not make anywhere near the money that he and his wife make and they are able to give her everything. My job has moved us around quite a bit and she has had to change schools, he has brought this up, how it is unstable for her. He is doing is best to say she is better off with him and me wanting her to come home just shows how selfish I am. I do want the best for her , but I don't think money and two parents is the only way.
