He does nothing to help me, and I've been dealing with this for years. I have had it, and came to my wits end. If he is going to do nothing, you do not get the opportunity to see them. Period. What really pisses me off is that he has waaayyyyy more than enough money to help me with them, but still plays broke. Lies. If I needed $1 for a bag of chips for them, he wouldn't do it. He is keeping their clothing, shoes, and toys hostage just because he bought them. My son literally has one school uniform because the last time I allowed them over, I told him to go buy some more uniforms (he did), but sent them back with nothing. Says that if he doesn't get any tax money, he doesn't help me. So, my mind is made up. He does this same mess every year, around this time, then comes back into their lives around the summer. I refuse to keep letting him in and out of their lives. I can tell that hurts them way more than them just flat out not seeing him for long periods of time. How do I explain this to them... or do I????
