Catch Justin Symbol at our New Year's Eve event in NYC with Assemblage 23:
It's been almost three months since my daughter has picked-up my call, or responded to my texts or snail mails. Sure there is back-story to the relationship between my daughter and I, including my mistakes when it came to money and my ex-wife among other things.
I thought that the Vampirefreaks Community could give me some guidance as this dad doesn't know what to do about his daughter whom he loves and knows is smart, beautiful and can do anything with her life. She's 17 and wants to live with her 21 year old boyfriend. She says she will finish high school and get a job and go to college at some point. I'd like to believe her, but the boyfriend doesn't have the background to support her, her aspirations or otherwise as he is struggling along with his mother and sisters.
Part of the problem is that my ex-wife (her mom) and I do not and I underline "do not" get along. Recently, my ex has reached-out to me, as she too is out of her mind about whether to just let my daughter go and do her thing, or to help guide her as she becomes a young adult. I tried to express my concern and desire for her not to live with the boyfriend, whom I met only
once. I am very concerned for her future and expressed that to her before she cut me off. I always asked her to leave the lines of communication open between us, but now that they aren't, what can I do to tell her that I love her, care about her, am only concerned that she is safe, happy, successful and with someone who treats her well and loves her?
I know we've got some great people in the VF community and I'd love any comments, advice or guidance from the dads, moms and teenagers out there. To be fair, I know there are three sides to every story. My daughter was moved around by her mom almost every year since she was about 7 because of lack of finances from myself and her mom. She is no doubt angry at me and her mom (perhaps) and she has every right to be about all the moves, but at no point did I ever not come to her when I could, get her what she needed or try to give her some experiences that I thought would benefit her (which she vehemently might not have wanted - one trip I sent her on in particular - whoops!).
Hopefully, she'll make the right decisions for herself and her family. With help from the VF community, I hope I can impress upon her to make decisions best suited for a strong willed, smart, creative, talented young woman who has a dad with his heart ripped-out over her current journey.
Thank you everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to all of the VF American members. Here's hoping your family dynamics are less problematic and dramatic and that you have a great holiday with your friends and family!
