We got divorced last June, by July he was engaged, married in October. I'm fine with all that. But now his new wife is crossing the line - wants the kids (5and 6) to call her mom, won't let them talk to me at their t-ball games if it's "their" weekend, etc. The kids spend every other weekend with them, never get a bath, no reading, no homework done. I want us "adults" to be just that, but it's not happening. My ex just says "it was your doing, deal with it" - I was the one that filed for divorce. How do you make someone understand that the kids should come first-? I.e Don't avenge yourself on me by being a horrible parent, talk bad about me, etc.?
