Parental George I have a friend who is recently divorced. She has a three year old girl. Her ex has visitation rights and picks up the kid twice a week. When the kid is with him she can do whatever she wants. He has no rules for her and lets her eat, do and say anything she wants to. The problem is is when the kid gets returned to my friend it's been a nightmare to get her to behave. It's been getting worse every week. The mother ends up looking like the bad guy by saying "no" to the child. The father won't listen to anything my friend has to say. I've never had kids. I have no ideas on this one.
