Customer: Hello, so makennas father txted her this evening for the first time since October 10th.... to me I feel it’s all about him. He talks about his birthday and still no apology!!! Makenna had no remorse either when she seen the txt... she actually told my mom her grandma alone that how great she feels without them in her life...

Debra, Expert

Hello and Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** will be working on your question today and I am looking forward to our conversation.

Debra, Expert

I know your question is important to you and I will be giving it the time and attention it deserves.

Sometimes responses and replies take time, so I ask you to be courteous and patient to allow me the time to type answers to you and also to others. At times I may even have to do some research.

I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.

So I guess this means he for sure saw the email, right?

Customer
Oh I’m sure he has! I don’t know anymore.. Makenna is doing her own thing can’t make her txt him back. She doesn’t want to Respond to that she feels it’s all about him when he says “his birthday “ still no apology... I can’t control how she’s feeling. She still doesn’t want to go there like I mean to there house at all!
Customer
She seems happier not going there !

Debra, Expert

Here is the answer to your query. Please do not hesitate to ask any follow up questions related to this response and know that I will respond as soon as I can.

The fact is that as she gets older and older she will make her own decisions about everything and if he doesn't fix the relationship they're going to have a difficult time. So she's waiting for him to fix it because he's the adult and she still the child and perhaps this is his first step of trying to do that and he just didn't do it very well.

That's from a legal point of you she really is in the driver seat right now because of her age. And you know that child protective services agrees with my view.

Does that make sense?

Customer
that makes sense! But honestly her father isn’t the type to apologize, he’s never opened up to Makenna . He knows she doesn’t want to go there even the email said it... want you to know though that I’m not holding her back with txting them. She just simply doesn’t want to. I told her she can’t ignore forever but she isn’t going to talk about the innocent she told me she’ll feel awkward just meeting up with them at a park.. she wants me to stay in the parking lot. I’ll feel awkward too lol but I would do it for her. I just know her father will be like why she here in his head and think it’s stupid...

Debra, Expert

Oh that will be horrible for you!

Customer
Yep!!
img

Debra, Expert

I hope you don't have to do that.

Customer
Not sure! I know I’d have to drive her regardless to wherever they met!
img

Debra, Expert

That goes without saying unfortunately.

Maybe find a park near a coffee shop?

Customer
I’d just be sitting in the truck! I can’t sit in a coffee shop unfortunately. Not allowed too!
img

Debra, Expert

Maybe there is an outdoor one?

Customer
Could be! But I’ll just drive around or something .... but on that note her step mother txted her again this evening.. and of course getting her daughter involved and trying to make Makenna feel bad! Makenna had enough she txted her back! See the picture below.
Customer
This is what was said back! I’m floored!!! What you mean you didn’t hurt her! Wow! Makennna is mad right now.
Customer
Makennna isn’t hurting her ... or wanting too she just needs her space... every txt they talk about is about Ariella ! It’s ridiculous.
img

Debra, Expert

They won't admit they were wrong and in fact this woman just said they didn't so anything. The opposite of what they should be saying.

Ah, you know what I just realized. They are trying to create evidence to show the CAS that they didn't do anything wrong. If they apologized it would be an admission of guilt I guess.

Customer
Yep! Well they did mention CAS in another txt saying they are working with them to make things better and blah blah. And asked what they could do to make things better not the Damage is done... this has even happening for 2 years now. So Makenna txted her back saying this.
img

Debra, Expert

She is really angry at them and she is getting angrier because of their actions now. They don't see it.

They are blaming her!

Customer
they are! Seems like it
img

Debra, Expert

It's always easier to blame someone else then to look at yourself and realize you're at fault. They're also trying to manipulate her by guilt instead of recognizing that they've hurt here. They further hurt her.

Customer
that’s completely right!
Customer
I’m glad your seeing what I’m seeing
img

Debra, Expert

It's really obvious and they sure are selfish and not very bright. It looks like they are a good match!  You must be so happy you are free of him.

Customer
Ha ha ha very!!!
img

Debra, Expert

But poor Makenna. They must be making her very sad as well as mad.

img

Debra, Expert

Is there anything more I can help you with before I mark this question as complete?

Customer
