If your child is refusing to see the other parent, you have a responsibility to manage the situation as positively as you can.
Provided your ex is a good parent who really wants to see the child, you should actively encourage contact, make it out to be a fun activity. Try to reassure your child that you both love them and that it is important for you both to spend time with them.
What if I have valid reasons for concern?
If you are worried about the safety of your child, for example, alcohol/drug misuse by your ex partner, domestic abuse issues, abduction or concerns regarding physical/emotional harm you should seek assistance from the Local Authority as to how to deal with this moving forward as well as approaching a family solicitor for legal advice.
