My husband gets his kids (13 year old daughter and 11 year old son) every weekend (for 4&1/2 years now). His daughter now refuses to visit us. Approximately one year ago, she wanted to stay home one weekend a month so 'she could spend time with her friends.' We agreed. One week a month turned into every other weekend, two weekends in a row, etc. and now we are going on six weeks in a row if she doesn't visit this weekend. Her brother loves to visit us and can't wait until the weekends. She will come up with excuses and lies for why she doesn't want to visit. We believe that she does not want to visit because we are more strict with her than her mother is and can't get away with doing some things like she can in her mother's home.
What can my husband do so that he can see his daughter? We do not want to force her. We have tried talking to her and to her mother and stepfather. Nothing. Can his support be lowered? We do not want to do this but maybe the 'threat' may help. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
