Fighting so hard for your children to see the other parent and being made to feel bad when the kids finally realise what a waste of space he is. Father accuses me of denying contact and turning the kids against him when in fact he has done that all by himself with his inconsistent contact and abandoning them to live in another country. Now back in the country and still not making the effort to come and see the kids.
Made even worse by his mother sticking her nose in and claiming that I’m also denying her contact – truth is that I’ve maintained regular video calls and have taken my children 180 miles several times a year to visit her. She doesn’t bother to visit them despite being a short distance away when she visits her daughter.
