    • tolerate him if it means seeing your child more often, or tolerate him less by not seeing your child very much.  create situations where conversation with him is minimal and learn a mantra to calm the rage in your head when u r near him.  create situations accidently purposely so u can see your child without the significant other...all just a play pretend at a minuimal.  sorry i have a daughter whom use to have a significant at that point boyfriend...culd not stand him but play pretended my like for him.......but he rarely came to the house, i kept my daughter busy at times so she saw him less etc...they have now broken up....

    • You learn to live with it! And can only hope that you learn to appreciate and love them as your child does.

    • Nita, you are so accurate.  Yes, there is downright rage inside of us when we have to deal with this man.  He is so BENEATH my daughter it’s unbelievable. And she does not see it.  And so we pretend everything is ok.

      Lisa, I hope I can learn to find some redeeming qualities in him as time goes on, but so far, I haven’t.
