What is reasonable to expect if a 4 yr about talking on the phone to her father

Q:  My husband keeps putting in petitions and letters to my lawyer saying we wont answer the phone when he calls. He sees her 2-3 times a week and calls every day. The child doesnt always want to talk on the phone and she hangs up immediately. I tell her if she doesn't talk to him she cant watch tv or have icecream etc. but it doesnt matter to her. Hiw can i make her talk so the judge dont think im a bad parent. I have sole custody he has set visitation. I always let him make up time. What should i do

A:  David's Answer:  Try to tell her to at least get on the phone to say hello. You're right that a 4-year-old won't always listen. The question becomes if he's filed multiple other petitions on the same issue what the Judge has thought of those multiple petitions. For a full assessment, schedule a consultation with a NYC Child Custody lawyer. -- David Bliven, Bronx Child Custody attorney (
