The mom has supervised visitation, but doesn't take advantage of it because she won't find a supervisor for her visitation. She texts (not calls) constantly asking me to tell our daughter that she loves her and to ask our daughter to call her. I pass on the messages and have given our daughter full access to my phone to call her mother any time she wants, but she refuses - she does not want to talk to her mom, period. Daughter is 11, and I have custody because the mom has many issues related to violence, drugs, mental disorder, instability, etc. We are going back to court next month for a hearing to determine whether the current custody order will remain in place or if the mom will get unsupervised visitation. I don't want to look like I'm denying her access to her mom. What do I do?
