My ex and I have been split up since I was 5 months pregnant with our daughter. We both agreed we would never fight or have an argument in front of her, though for the first time a few weeks ago he yelled at me while she was with me. She and I left the situation immediately, and when I was putting her seat belt on she told me next time daddy yelled at me she would kick him. She has mentioned this a few times out of the blue or if I tell her that daddy will be cranky with mummy if she’s not dressed and ready to go. This morning though, when she was refusing to get ready to go to his house and I told her that daddy would be cranky with me, she said she would kill him. I have not mentioned anything to my ex just yet as he tends to come up with a story that is exactly the same but about me, and I know this isn’t true as I have caught him out lying about things she’s apparently said before. I’m not sure whether this is a phase she is going through or something I am needing to get a professional to look see her.
