[QUOTE=ScruffyGuy]The judge is correct.

It is not a good idea to bring up a child inside a misrepresentation of reality. This can lead to the child becoming withdrawn or adopting play-time type fantasies as her own reality. Children should experience the world as it is.

This doesn't mean that kids can't be sheltered or protected or slowly introduced to some of the more difficult concepts of life. Kids need supervision and explanation of what's around them. But if you take it to the extreme and devise a reality that is not in concert with actual life -- when the kid finally DOES get a glimpse of real life -- it could scare the heck out of her.

Moderation, please. No one is suggesting you toss your child into the middle of the Rat Race and go have coffee while she flounders around out there. But you do not want to keep her under figurative lock and key, either.

She's just a baby right now. She isn't entitled to detailed explanations, nor does she NEED them. You introduce your boyfriend to her just like you'd introduce anyone else. Tell her his name. She needs to be comfortable around him.[/QUOTE]

Thank you very much for your input....it helps alot to have some "outside" advice. Sometimes...when you are in the actual situation...you miss what you are really supposed to be doing. I am just extremely over protective of my daughter....and don't want to cause any unnecessary damage. I think some damage might already be done because me and her dad are not together. I just need to go with the flow and quit worrying about it. She will be fine.
Thanks again
