Answer #1

I think you should stay with your mother. She needs you and is able to give you more personal attention than your father can – his attention is divided between you and his other family.

She is the one who is going to be more supportive of you as you get older, get married and have children of your own.

You have the rest of your life to be your father’s daughter but now is when your mother needs you as a friend and companion. She may not be able to give you as many physical things as your father can but she can give you more personal attention and emotional support.

Answer #2

Seriously look at yourself 10 years down the road. I know its hard to look at things like this but just because a parent spends money on you doesn’t mean they have the best environment. Your dad can afford to buy your affection, but is that really better?
