I have recently started living with a man who has two kids. So with his two and mine we have four in total. Before we got together his ex let him have his kids all the time and really didnt have anything to do with them unless forced to do so. Well one day she flipped out on him and told him that she dont understand why he got with a girl that cant handle being around his kids. all I told her was how can she say that if Im around them more than she is. Of course she flipped out and started screaming that I called her a bad parent. Now She has limited the time he is allowed to have them. It is not because she wants them just she wants to look like she cares more. She is constantly leaving them with her sixteen year old daughter. Plus she slams their Dad and me both in there presence. Last week, we couldnt arrange a sitter for a short notice to work on a saturday so "Scott" asked her to keep the boys until Sat. It was a screaming battle but there honestly wasnt anything we could do. So Saturday when we picked up the boys, his ten year old informed us that his mom told them that his Dad didnt love him and didnt want him anymore. She told them that his new g/f was more important. It is causing a rift between me and the kids no matter how hard I try to build a relationship with them. Any ideas?
