I can honestly say a restraining order will be meaningless to him. He’s been fairly passive since that last big incident. Even his older daughter who is 22 talked to him about how wrong he is. She loves my daughter. And also loves her dad. I’m careful how I press my daughter. When things are calm at her place she’s pleased, not happy, but glad for the peace. I have a sister in Chicago we can fly to if my daughter wants to escape. It may seem drastic but it’s far away from him. A plan is ready, but it’s my plan, not hers.

I’m retired and Medium helps me foster a young mind. I write about my experiences in life. Some mundane, some sad, some funny, and hopefully none boring!
