My fourteen year old daughter is responsible and wonderful young lady. For awhile now she has been coming home to my house stating she does not want to go to her fathers. I have always tried to validate her feelings, but emphasize the importance of her relationship with her father. I have suggested that she speak with him about her feelings. She replies if she tries to speak to him, he will yell at her, ground her, or say he is too busy. She has been in tears since Sunday not wanting to go to her father's tonight and discussing all the reasons she doesn't want too. This morning she threatened if I make her go she will run away. She wants me to email him and tell him all the reasons she doesn't want to go. I don't know what to do. I don't want to be in contempt, but I can't make her.
