We are, unfortunately, bound by the "system" and if your ex makes it difficult, we have no choice but to trudge along through the legal quagmire in an effort to have the authorities determine what is "right" and then enforce it.

It sucks. It sucks a LOT. But until such a time as "adults" can act like adults and put their petty BS behind them (not only when, but certainly especially when kids are involved) it's all we have.

I feel sorry for your daughter, as she appears to be missing out on a lot of what life has to offer.

I honestly wish I had some wisdom to offer you, or perhaps a "key" to this problem. Unfortunately, I do not - other than to say keep trying on two fronts:

1) continue to try to help your ex understand that he is just hurting his child, not you; and

2) if that's not going to work, you have to engage the Machine.. do this in parallel with item #1

Good luck!
