          Parents Fighting A Custody Battle Confronted About How They Behave In Front Of Children


          October 11, 2016

          Daniel says he has been in a custody battle with his ex-wife, Robin, for years. He says he’s fighting for custody of their 12-and 14-year-old daughters because he claims Robin’s home is unsafe for their children. He claims she has a problem with alcohol and has dated abusive men.

          However, Robin says that Daniel has been “brainwashing” their daughters to hate her. And, she claims he “kidnapped” their daughters in the middle of the night and won’t return them to her – even though she says there’s a court order for him to do so.
