Default Re: Ex ignores me re: children

Ive been a stepmom for over 20 years. Is there any way you can talk to your ex after he has the kids? This should be his time with the kids (sounds like they need it) and anything other than a true emergency seems like it could wait. Couldn't most of these issues (like dis enrolling him) been planned before his visitation? I'm not sure if talking about the kids on the phone, while he has visitation is healthy for them to hear, and it also takes away time for them to bond with him. Unless you are worried your ex is harming your kids, it seems a little intrusive to be constantly contacting him during his visitation. Does he call you every 18 hours when you have the kids? Don't you trust him that as a parent, he can handle the kids himself when they are with him?

My kids' dad has been ignoring me lately. Sometimes for as much as 18 hours when he has the kids. I can't get in touch with my kids or get answers about important issues regarding them.

He claims he left his phone in the car (for five hours) or didn't notice that I called. I find this hard to believe in the cell phone age.

With all the problems involving the boys lately (one in trouble with the law, which requires close contact with his probation officer, and the other with growing mental health issues), we had been discussing the kids quite a bit.

Now I haven't heard from him since 1:30 pm yesterday, and it's 8:30 in the morning. I was supposed to disenroll our 17-year-old this morning so he could get his GED (a condition the judge set on him bc he's failing all his classes).

I have no idea what's going on. I haven't been able to talk to my nine-year-old for two days.

Please help!
