To my husband
We agreed that you would discipline your daughters and I would discipline my daughters. How dare you cross the line and discipline my daughter. I have kept my mouth shut about your daughter for the past year and a half. It was very difficult for me but I did it. I did it because I love and respect you. You have a very different parenting style than I do so I had to learn to keep my mouth shut. How betrayed I feel that you crossed the line and set boundaries for my daughter. You hurt me to my core. I thought you respected me and our relationship enough to honor our agreement. What am I to do now. You have never disciplined your own daughter, perhaps because you are afraid that she will not love you. But, you set a rule for my daughter. She is trying to make the right decision and just wants to be loved by a father. You were her father figure and you shattered her world. I am very angry and hurt and don’t know how to get through this. You have separated our blended family and I don’t think it can be mended.
