You Will Need
- A psychologist
Try to empathize. Put yourself in his shoes without making excuses for him.
Support your daughter
Be supportive of your daughter. If you criticize him to her, she will be forced to defend him and you will only push her away.
Withdraw any financial support you provide. It may be difficult to see your daughter suffer, but enabling helps no one.
Consider professional help
Consider his mental state. He may be depressed and need psychological support. Discuss possible mental health options with him and your daughter.
