Co-parenting with an irresponsible ex

Danielle - posted on 07/22/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




I'm 39 & my ex is 44.. We have 2 daughter's 12 & 15 years old. Their father has them around his steady string of new (usually younger) girlfriend's.. every few months a new one... Including triangles.. Recently I found out that the "adults" often drink & smoke marijuana in their presence (on the porch visible & accessible to the kids.. including the gf's toddlers). He also recently has been including our 15yo in inappropriate adult outings with said gf's. Took her to a concert with them that was not age appropriate. Even attempting to allow her to go "hang out" with with the gf on her own! Along with bad mouthing me in front of the kids & allowing our kids to join in. I'm not perfect.. I'm not asking him to be.. but act appropriately & responsibly in the presence of the kids. Purposely causing my relationship with our daughter to deteriorate rapidly. About to lose it.. Anyone with similar situations please help with some tips! Desperate

There's nothing you can do about what goes on at his house unless your children are in danger. You would also need hard evidence though. You can speak to your lawyer about changing the visitation orders.
All you can do is focus on giving your children a loving home with you. Your children will see that your house is the better one to live in so just focus on what you can do.
