My daughter is happy at my house but cries when I pick her up from her mum

DAD DILEMMA

DEAR DEIDRE:  MY daughter is happy at my house but cries when I pick her up from her mum.

I wonder if I am doing the right thing in making her come. She is four.

I am 33 and left when she was a baby but try to help her mum, although she has been awkward since I started living with my partner and her two-year-old son.

My daughter comes for tea once a week and stays over every other weekend.

She has a great time but when I collect her says she hates coming – and my girlfriend’s son.

My team and I are working safely from home but we are here to help you as always.

DEIDRE SAYS: Don’t give up.

Loving contact with you is key for her emotional development.

Kids of separated parents often find the changeover difficult even when they are happy in both homes.

She might be picking up negative messages from her mum.

Make sure you have one-to-one time with her and find support through Families Need Fathers (fnf.org.uk, 0300 0300 363).
