After Separation

My daughter has turned very nasty against me as her father has been discussing the court details with her. I get punched and kicked she was never like this before. Is there anyway I can help her?

    As you've clearly recognised, she needs help and support from you and I expect you're more than ready to give it. It also sounds like you've understood that anger is very understandable and natural.
    I know it's hard to take but it is a kind of vote of confidence in you that she feels free and safe to express her feelings to you in this way. See if you can help her to do this without using violence towards you. Punching a pillow? Drawing, writing, role play with toys? (Depending on her age)
    If children are drawn into the conflict between their parents in this way, what they experience is divided loyalties and confusion. I'm sure she loves both you and her dad. Let her know that you understand this and that you're not expecting her to choose between you.
    Does this help?
