What can I do.
I was married to a violent man for 10 years before I got the help I needed to separate. By then my daughter was 9 years old. she is now 16 and I am horrified that she has started a relationship with someone I see as very like her father...charming to everyone except her...he has massive moods and I see her worrying about the mood he'll be in before he arrives to pick her up. She is also beginning to dress only in clothes he approves of and her usually bubbly personality is subdued . Her father really rates this bf and has started asking him out for drinks and go to football matches with him. My daughter has been in regular contact with her father since the split..although she has never stayed with him. Now she quotes what he says and tells me I didn't know how to handle him...and that she loves this bf who is 19.....and that Im not interested in her happiness. I don't know what to do.
