My step daughter does not want to spend time with her father all the time, she is 15 and it is because he is not so nice to her all the time, he is demeaning and condescending and mentally abusive to her. He has been warned many times by there mom to stop how he treats the girls. they know there father is an ass sometimes. But they also know that he want to see them only when he wants to, and when it fits into there lives. Is there a presetent on this subject like case study or many cases that way in the childes wants and wishes?
The mo is not refusing to klet her see her father, the 15 year old is just not wanting to go and spend time with him. She refuses to get into the car when he comes to pick her up. How is that her ooms fault?
