My ex keeps throwing our kids out of his home as discipline

So my ex husband called me last night on his weekend with the kids and told me that as our son was behaving rudely, he wanted him out of his house.

I tried to have a discussion with him about alternative discipline ideas as the whole abandoning thing is getting old and it doesn't solve any problems.

But yet again he said that if I won't take him back he will get his parents to take him.
It's not that I didn't want to have him back, I just wanted him to take some ownership in helping to raise our kids. When the going gets tough, he screams and kids the kids out.

His parents always seem to have to step in for him and enable him to continue on his demanding tirade. It's really hard.

Does anyone else go through something like this?

Personally I'd be taking him back to court and pursuing him having supervised visitations if he's going to keep bailing on his kids. How old are your kids that he keeps throwing out? I understand wanting him to step up and be a father, but by trying to force him to take care of his responsibilities you will only end up hurting your kids. If he doesn't want them... it's his loss.
