I have mixed feelings over this one.
My exhusband has abandoned our daughter. He only came once a month for a weekend but would call everyday. She would run away from the phone screaming "I don't want to talk to him, I don't like him" etc...and trying to get her to talk on the computer to him was about the same although on some random days she would talk to him and they would play games via the computer.
Since he was placed on probation (for 5 years for violating our decree) he has dropped off the face of the earth. Well our world.
My daughter hasn't really asked for him...she's talked about him but hasn't asked to call or talk to him.
I don't know how to prepare her for this. I have to say our life is so much more peaceful. I want her to know it is not her fault.
