My exhusband and I have been split up for a year now. I thought that by him not seen kids on daily basis he would show kids how much he cares for them and miss them. He has unlimited access to kids but chooses to call once in a while and visits them the most twice a month. My 7 year old realizes that her dad has no interest in her and now sometimes pretend he's died and my two year old doesn't really get it yet but starting to. His Mom and step dad haven't called or checked to see how they are. They've always shown no interest in my kids unlike with their other grand kids totally different story. They are very devoted to being in their lives. I have tried to get them involved with my kids but they simply don't want any part of it. They send birthday/christmas present. Last year for christmas my ex FIL came to drop off gifts for kids and left. He didn't have the courtasy to say hi to my kids all he did was ring door bell and left gifts at door and left. Should I allow my kids to receive gifts from them still if they want no contact with my kids. Any ideas on how to help my kids cope with this. Because since we split up his whole side of the family have completely forgoten about my kids as if my kids don't exist.
