I am a Mom of two (19 and 23) and I have been divorced for over 7 years after 20 years of marriage. To say the least my Ex is not over it and still mentally terrorizes my kids about why they still have a relationship with me after I ruined our family (according to him). He especially takes out his anger on my poor 23 year old daughter. What can I do? I feel helpless and sad for them both. I of course left him and the details are far too complicated to go into but I cannot have any contact with him because of his mental abuse and manipulating tendencies. My poor daughter is asked by him why she is friends with me, why she spends more time with me when I am the enemy and the devil and just this last weekend he has told her that I need to apologize to him for ruining our family. Anybody else in this situation or have any advice?
