Single Parent in Need of Some Serious Advice
I'm a single parent of a seven-year-old child. We have no communication with her father or his family. Four years ago after a court visit he calmed he was moving to Tennessee, never provided us with a contact number or an address. My biggest mistake was choosing him as my daughter’s father, he already had a family and we got together during a time when he was separated for a period of two years. (So he told me, but this resulted not to be true after I found that I had conceived and she conceived a month prior) Since his last visit 4 years ago I have noticed changes in my daughter’s social behavior towards male boys. She rather plays with boys, and has even engaged in kissing boys. We have been in counseling before but have not been consistent, due to losing my insurance every time I loss a job. In seven years I have been employed by 10 different employers and been dismissed in 8 out of the 10. My lack of concentration and inability to complete tasks on time played the main roll for my terminations. Recently, I have noticed that my daughter has been displaying anger at home. She recently told me that she blames me for her father leaving her. She told me that he left because I always gave him attitude and was never happy to see him. I recently tried reaching her father's family but was not successful. Can anyone give me some advice? I want to eliminate the anger she's feeling, and don't want to damage her.
