Success Stories

A Dad and Teenage Daughters

Parents came to me for guidance about their upcoming separation. Their daughters are 12 and 15 and wanted to help the girls adapt to their dad living apart from them. We discussed how and what to tell them.

In this family, mom has been the parent in charge since she is home and dad works in a corporation. They rely on mom for most things but on dad for homework. Like many dads with teen daughters, communication can be difficult between them at times.

We made a plan. The girls knew about the separation and when it was happening. Dad moved out on a day when mom had the girls visiting family. The next day, dad took the girls to his new apartment. Although it's much smaller than the marital home, he showed the girls an area they can make it their own. He suggested a couple of chairs, an area rug, and perhaps a desk that they might choose themselves. He asked for their ideas about decorating the apartment. At first, they hesitated, saying they didn't know much about interior design, but they were flattered to be asked and were happy their dad needed their help.This is a great way for a dad to engage with teen daughters and was very successful.

It's important for children to see themselves in the home of the parent living outside of the family home. This is helped by having their pictures in obvious places, items they have made displayed, a space that's their own, and their favorite food in the fridge or pantry. These ideas help children feel connected, even if not living together full time.
