[ - ] My 8 yo DD went to visit her father for the first time ever earlier this week. They have very little relationship (he calls maybe 4-6 times a year), but he said his entire family was flying in from all over the world and wanted to have her there to see everyone. When I took DD to the airport, she wouldn't even hug me goodbye. When I called her this evening to ask about how everything was going, I could barely get a word out of her. She eventually said, "Can I get off the phone now?" I'm so incredibly hurt. I have raised her alone since she was 2, and I've sacrificed so much to give her an amazing life while her father has called a whopping 2 hours a year as his contribution. Is this normal? 13 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I just mean that she may be so inwardly focused and stressedthat she can't or doesn't feel ready to talk about it.

[ - ] I can't stand my dh anymore. Narcisist. Cruel to our dc in the worst way- inconsistently. Alternating Btwn being thrilling exciting fun attentive dad, and being a total ass who undermines their confidence, is completely unsupportive, and or disengaged. They have just enough of the "great" him to long for more and want to please at any cost. There is nothing he's ever done that is legally considered child abuse to point of denying custody, nor anything that is documentable in more than a he says/she says kind of way. So no way to leave without forcing two very young dc's into 50percent of their time ALONE with mr psycho, without even me to help them avoid the worst or even know what he's put them through that particular day to try and do damage control. So basically, he gets to destroy their lives either way and the family law system supports him. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Time to find a therapist that will challenge you to set boundaries and be a supportive parent, without creating kids who cannot cope . If you build them up every time he pulls them down, that's a bad pattern. They need coping skills to make them strong and independent. [ Reply | More ]

Setting boundaries with him in any of the normal ways results in him escalating control tactics or shouting in front of dc. There is no way to deal with him truly but no contact. Hear you about teaching kids to be strong, but also, they need normal behavior modeled in the face of his bizarre reactions. Honestly I'd never let it get to this point but don't feel they're even safe with him- nothing terrible has ever happened bc I've never allowed a situation where it would be possible.

The secret is to start preparing at least 3-4 days in advance. I made my stuffing and sweet potatoes on Monday. I made everything else I could today. Tomorrow will be 1/2 reheating + timing, 1/2 cooking from scratch, but easy things like turkey breast (I highly recommend foregoing the entire bird and getting several good quality breasts and maybe some thighs/drumsticks if your guests like dark meat), green beans, mashed potatoes that are easy to prepare and cook. Biggest challenge for me will be the timing of it all. First time I did this, btw. Every year until this year, I do everything at last minute and it's AWFUL. I will never do that again, ruins your holiday. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] There's a kid in my son's (age 3) pre-school class who is very violent. He pushes my son down, screams in kids faces very loudly, hits, etc. On Tuesday, I got a call that this kid had gotten mad at my son and headbutted him in the mouth, and my DS had bitten his tongue so there was lots of blood. When I talked to the director of the school, she was very much blaming my son for the incidents that had happened between this child and my son. "Maybe you need to talk to your son and tell him to stay away from this boy." "You know, your son just really knows how to push this boy's buttons." My son has never, ever maliciously hurt another child, and I think there's a very big difference between knowing how to push someone's buttons (whatever that means at age 3) and headbutting a kid in the mouth out of anger. I asked that the child be moved out of the room. She said she could not do that. What would you do? 35 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Is the other kid a minority or kid on scholarship? [ Reply | More ]

OP: Nope. He's a little blond kid that looks absolutely cherubic. I'm not sure of his financial background, but he seems to come to school in nice clothes and seems well cared for. [ Reply | More ]

I would go in on Monday and tell the teacher, "Under no circumstance is my child to be in the same vicinity of Zeke. They are to sit on opposite sides of the room, eat on opposite sides of the table and play in different groups. Once is an accident, but I will hold you personally responsible if he is attacked again." [ Reply | More ]

OP: Well, the director told me the teachers are trying "constantly" to keep the two of them separate. In my opinion, I don't think they're doing enough, and I've wondered if perhaps they are understaffed. [ Reply | More ]

This is a wholly unacceptable response from your PSD. She will continue to blame your child and minimize the behavior of the other child until you make her care about it. My advice would be to call a few of the parents whose kids have also been tormented and go in as a group. Three at a minimum, four or more ideal. [ Reply | More ]

OP: How do I find out which other kids have been hurt by this boy? On the phone, they wouldn't even tell me who had done it. "It's against policy." Of course, when I go to the school, my son ran up to me crying, saying that this boy had hit him in the mouth. [ Reply | More ]

Of course- why do they want to arm you with information? Go ask the other parents at pickup or get the nanny to do it. [ Reply | More ]

I would start by asking your son, then calling those parents. Begin the conversation neutrally and make it about your kid, and then ask if their kid has had any problems with anyone in the class. Make it about the school taking responsibility for the safety of everyone, not about punishing this crazy kid. [ Reply | More ]

I'm wondering if the director will give up those phone numbers, based on her reluctance. [ Reply | More ]

Sorry--I thought you'd have a directory. Chatting parents up at pickup seems like the best idea. Keep in mind that schools are required to provide a safe environment, and if your child is not safe, they are failing their legal responsibility. [ Reply | More ]

OP: I'm not sure, actually. I assume most children in the class are pretty well off. [ Reply | More ]
