My step children, girl 16, boy 13, have lived with me and their father for 10 years mostly. You know the occasional back and forth. But he has sole custody. She is an alcoholic, has abandoned them MANY times physicaaly and emotionaly. Never pays child suport, rarely recognizes their birthdays or christmas etc. Moves constantly, etc. Any way the mother refused to speak to my 16 year old for over a year, and now since she promised to be sober again (for the gazillionth time ) their like best friends. We ( with the help of MY parents ) through her a sweet 16 party all her mother did was call her in the AM. Any way there would be pages of stories like this. I feel threatened when they talk, the mother lets them do ANYTHING and we have to pick up the pieces.
