DEAR DEIDRE: I HAVE found out my ex is trying to spread lies that I ill-treat her – and getting our daughter to lie about it too.
The stress of it all is affecting my girl badly.

I divorced my wife five years ago. She has alcohol problems and our son, 14, and our daughter, 16, both live with me and my girlfriend.
I noticed my daughter was getting withdrawn and aggressive, not caring about her appearance, then began double-checking each little thing, like whether she’d switched off lights.
She’s been diagnosed with OCD but won’t see our GP. He says he can’t help if she doesn’t want help.
I don’t know where to turn now – for help for her OCD and with getting her mother to stop spreading lies about me.
DEIDRE SAYS: It has been damaging for your daughter to be caught and weaponised in the crossfire between her parents.
Don’t criticise her mother to her. Families Need Fathers help to maintain children’s relationship with both parents after family breakdown (fnf.org.uk, 0300 0300 363).
My e-leaflet Overcoming Obsessions can help her better understand her OCD.
