She is sad, hurt and angry.
She is the type of child who needs to be occupied constantly. She has been living, breathing and talking day camp for the past month. This Shabbos she had asked if she could invite a few friends to sleep over.
And now she has no where to go for the next 6 weeks.
She called her father multiple times but he did not answer his phone, so she left a brave message telling him exactly how she feels- angry and hurt.
She is the first one of us to actually have the guts to stand up to him and tell him how it "really" is.
I am proud of her!
I have left a message for her law guardian, who will call me back tomorrow.
I so very much do not wish to get into these sorts of battles with X. Its annoying and draining and just not worth my time and energy. He is a selfish bully. Now that I have an attorney and an order of protection against him he is afraid to say anything directly to me, but to a little kid he is not scared.
Abusers are bullies.
He has lost his relationship with my older daughter due to the seminary fiasco and he is about to destroy his relationship with my younger daughter.
I recall that a few years ago when my oldest daughter got married, my husband actually said out loud- "One down, three more to go"!
I was shocked, because I realized that he views our children with a jaundiced eye-
He is waiting to get rid of them one by one.....Well hes definitely heading in the right direction!
