If your teen is telling you that they want to live with one parent or another, listen to them! Do not feel insulted if they want to live with your soon to be ex-spouse. Ask them why, take them to a therapist, and join them in the therapy to be sure that the need is from the child and not the parent. If it is the child's need and the other parent is safe, then let them go, they will come back. If you fight them they will close you off.
