Does anyone have any good advice on how to keep the drama from increasing even after difficult children are removed from the household. On my son I have a OP, but my daughter and her father are another story. I tried letting my youngest see her sister a few weeks ago at a local restaurant while I sat a few tables over. But the situation was unbearable. Youngest daughter had asked to see her sister and I decided to comply. easy child 3 doesn't really mention her sister or her father and this was the first time she had asked. I'd rather find some solution than to have her sister running around causing more problems for everyone. Her brainwashing and the lies are intolerable. I wish that their was someone who could talk with youngest and make an official statement to the family court that it is in the child's best interests not to have any relationship with her father or her siblings. I am confident that I have tried everything and anything and all that results is more drama. I probably should have filed for an OP against my middle daughter, but to be honest after it took two years to get the first one, I just was too tired to go through it all again. My oldest was physically/sexually abusive, but my middle daughter is not. Their father also insists that all of their problems are my fault and he is demanding visitation with the youngest next month in court. She's seen him, visually only, maybe three times in the last year while he was dealing with middle daughter's problems. She won't go with him, and I'm pleading with him to "reserve visitation at this time", rather than me having to prove abandonment and that he is unfit (in his parenting style) and that she is unable to cope with the pressures of all of their lifestyles at this time. Of course the youngest is adamant about not attending counseling. I probably couldn't get supervised visits because father himself is non-abusive, just irresponsible and immature. How can I convince the court that I am not interfering, only protecting?
