I have kept my mouth shut time and time again when I see this type of question posted, but today I'm in a mood.
No offense to you "onehappywmn", but what if you were in an intact relationship with the father of this child, and the child "didn't want to see him?" Would you kick him out? Divorce him? Tell your daughter he has no say in her life and to not listen to him? Tell her to ignore him? Send her off to live with someone else so she didn't have to see him?
Who is the parent and who is the child? Who is raising whom? If your child wanted to quit school at 11, would you let her? What about every other little iota of rebellion she will have in the future, will you just let her do whatever she wants?
Ok, I'm done, for now.
