My 12 yo son's step mother is very controlling. She claims to be a legal guardian and signed paperwork saying so, introduces herself as his mother, directly contradicts things that me and his father agree on carrying out, punishes him by taking his cell phone away (the only way that he can get a hold of me), tells him that the way I do things is wrong, etc.. My son's father just let's her take the reigns and handle everything. He's not even around the majority of the time that my son is scheduled to be at his house. After years of asking that issues concerning my son (including scheduling) take place between the legal guardians only (me and my son's father) I am at the end of my rope. I try to contact my son's father and she replies. He doesn't give me information about my son, she does. I've had to block her emails because she won't stop contacting me even though I have repeatedly asked her to stop and made it clear that my son's father is the only person I should be talking to. She acts like she is the other legal guardian in the matter and my son's father acts like he's not. She is manipulative and incessant. She purposefully makes her emails sound all nice and fluffy, rather than threatening so it is difficult to bring charges against her, but they are relentless and she won't stop no matter how I ask. After blocking two email accounts, she's resorted to calling me on the phone. I feel harassed and bullied! Why should I have to deal with her at all? She has no boundaries and is not a legal guardian. Is there something I can do legally to make her stop? Anyone have experience with this kind of thing? I need help! Thanks!
