I have decided to return to family therapy with Baby, my 14-year-old daughter. It seems we have difficulty communicating & she transfers her anger towards her father to me. The last time I, BabyDaddie & Baby went to family therapy, the therapist said I did not need to be there, because I seemed to have a healthier relationship with Baby, then BabyDaddie. So, the two of them, continued to go to therapy two more times. However, they soon stopped.
This time, I am focused on my relationship with her, rather than there's. This has enraged BabyDaddie, because he believes that he should be there, every time Baby goes to therapy. I disagree, because I know if he does attend he & his problems will take over the meeting & I want to focus on my relationship with her. Besides, if he wanted to have more therapy sessions with Baby, he could schedule them himself.
I think the real reason he does not want me to go to therapy with her is because he thinks negative things will be said about him. I also think he believes that me taking her to therapy may look good in court. In reality, I try to avoid saying anything negative about BabyDaddie & I would take her to therapy, even if a court date was not approaching.
Our first therapy session with just us girls is tomorrow at 10:30am.
