A father who was absent from his daughter's life for 10 years reconnected with her and is now facing a dilemma. When his daughter asked to live with him, he agreed but with one condition. This has caused a rift between him, his daughter, and his mother. The father believes that a child needs to follow rules and be respectful, but his mother disagrees. The daughter's behavior has also been an issue, as no punishment seems to work on her and she can be very disrespectful at times. However, after talking with his daughter, he discovered the real reason why she wants to live with him and it may not be what he expected. Read on to find out how this father handles the situation and what the outcome is.
