Is my son's new step-mom going too far?

My son's father recently got married and now he and his wife want me to contact them via a joint email account with issues about my son. I think it's a bunch of BS and told them I only need to contact him with issues related to our son. Your thoughts?

Is it possible (and I'm just trying to seek explanations here) that they have decided it is pointless having 2 email accounts and they've decided just to have a joint one? That happens! My husband and I pretty much just use my email account and his work one, and that's it.

We don't have the best relationship..anymore. His dad and I used to get along pretty well until they got engaged. It's mostly via email. I just don't see the need to consult with her on anything dealing with my son.

You are doing rightful. You should only contact them for the issues related to your son and nothing else. I know it is not comfortable for you to be in touch with your Ex-husband with is new wife, but you can't ignore your child also. Tough time.

Maybe he wants her to feel included. Or maybe she genuinely cares? However, I don't think that her disciplining your child is appropriate in anyway. If it were me, I would set boundaries, in writing. Hope this helps.
