Father has claimed for 10 years that he's a better parent. When given the chance, his actions said otherwise. Instead of being a Dad, he leaves her home alone and works extra shifts. When he gets home, he lets her roam around town with her boyfriend until late at night (she's underage). Her grades have plummeted. She is now failing school. All he wants is to take her away from Mom, and if he has to destroy his daughter to achieve his goal, so be it.
