My question involves child abuse or neglect in the State of: NC
My 15 year old has a good relationship with her biological father ( I have always encouraged it), he comes to get her whenever he wants to. He is married and so am I, she has known my husband since she was 15 mos. old and refers to him as dad, mainly because he was solely dad the first 4 to 5 years. Recently I found out through a counselor that my daughter was asking questions about suicide and it stemmed from the step-mother! After finding this out I did some investigating and talked to my baby who told me "everything" ( I feel like she is still hiding somethings to keep the peace). She has called my child pathetic, a liar, and tells her that she needs to sacrifice doing her school activities for her( the step-mother) and her bio-dad. (children DO NOT sacrifice!) This is a child who is a straight A student, in JROTC, a student athlete, BETA club member, Junior Civitan member, and has never met a stranger or enemy in her life. I told him that I no longer wanted our daughter around her. He lives 2 hours away and REFUSES to come see our daughter without his wife. He wants to take me to court, I told him PLEASE DO! Am I morally or legally wrong for wanting to keep my daughter away from an adult bully, especially when she is feeling stressed and fearful? The counselor told me one day, she was crying so bad that she started crying!
