How should I take care of my daughter after my divorce?
Q: I am 30 years old and got divorced six months ago. My daughter is 18 months old. My wife refused to accept our daughter & I took custody of her. Since I am working, I am not able to devote maximum time to her. My parents who are living in another city look her after. How should I bring up the child & make a bright career for her?
A:I am glad that you have your parents to take care of your young daughter. Make sure she is happy. See her as often as you can so that she forms a bond with you. At this stage, she just needs good nutrition and care, play activities and affection. These will be the foundation for her life. It seems too early to worry about her career. She could be sent to a Nursery school near the home after she is 3 years old. When you meet other parents of children of the same age, at that time, you will be able to pick up some ideas about what to plan for her. All the best.
