My ex-husband and I have been divorce for a year and remained best friends. Our children adjusted really well and everything was great, until he started seeing someone else. I don't mind at all. He is entitle to move on and I want him to be happy. The thing is his new girlfriend told him that we should not be friends and things started to get really ugly. I have never spoken to this woman, yet she found was to curse me out. Now you are probably thinking that I am a punk, however I am not talk is cheap and I am not interested in what she have to say because everything she is saying about me is coming from my ex-husband. The problem is the children. The lasting thing I wanted was them to get in the middle and no matter how hard I try, they seem to be dragging them in the middle. I don't talk bad about him, due to the fact that I still love this jerk and because it would not change a damn thing. But he went from seeing the children every other day to once a week if he shows up. Then because his girlfriend have two daughters that he is living with. Our children feels that he doesn't love them. My question is how do I help them through this rough patch. I know that I cannot heal all the hurt or the pain that they feel but how can I make it easier on them. They went from being loving and laughing all the time to crying for everything. They went from being independant to very clingy. What can I do? To mend their hearts, and bring back some kind of normalcy to their lives.
