My ex and I are divorced and in new relationships. His gf insists on calling herself and her dk my dks' sm and sb. She does not live with my ex, just stays there weekends when my dks are there. My ex is trying to get custody. His gf has my dks draw pictures of "family" which do not include me or their sf or anyone from our side of the family. At school my dks have drawn pics which show all people in the family - ex, gf, sf, me, everyone. I'm feeling very alienated and disrespected by my ex and his gf - they go so far as to not let the kids call me when they're with them. How do I deal with this and my feelings around it? How do I help the kids with this? I'm struggling here.
