It must be very hard being stuck in the middle being able to see your daughters perspective but as well as her dad's viewpoint.
Teenagers with their boyfriends/girlfriends can be a super challenging time for parents!
Im wondering if this is a partly a matter of putting more firm boundaries in place and sticking to them, even though i recognise this may feel harsh. Whats the worst that could happen do you think if you maintained that she had to return to her father's place on the weekend even if that meant her boyfriend cannot be there. Would she hate you for it? Would she stop talking to you maybe?
Have you felt comfortable discussing with her dad that she feels scared of his anger and that she doesnt feel like she is being heard by him. If not, do you think it might be a conversation worth having?
Sounds like a very tricky situation and that wouldnt be easy for any parent to navigate.
